Life’s A Drag + Disco Queen

A look at the good, the bad and the hilarious life of a drag queen, featuring 70s and 80s disco hits!

Presented by vocal powerhouse Dean Misdale, Life’s A Drag takes you on a reality-shaking rollercoaster ride of what it takes to be a QUEEN!

Awarded the Best Cabaret & Variety Show at Fringe World 2022, Dean’s diva moments come together in one show-stopping performance as they take you behind the scenes in the world of drag, recalling side-splitting real-life encounters from their appearance at Adele’s Perth concert and their starring role in Priscilla the Musical.

The show gets even more exciting as Dean also brings you “Disco Queen“, featuring all your favourite disco tracks from the 1970s and 1980s and accompanied by a live band ensemble.
