AHEAD of last night's opening of Darlington Hippodrome's production of Priscilla – Queen of the Desert, The Northern Echo Camera Club got a behind the scenes look at the cast in action.

The Darlington Operatic Society musical is on from Wednesday, April 27 at 7.30pm to Saturday, May 7 at 7.30pm.

Based on the Oscar-winning movie, Priscilla – Queen of the Desert is the heart-warming, uplifting adventure of three drag artists who hop aboard a battered old bus searching for love and friendship and end up finding more than they could have ever dreamed of.

Featuring a hit-parade of dancefloor classics including Don’t Leave Me This Way, Go West, Colour My World, Shake Your Groove Thing, Hot Stuff and many, many more, Priscilla Queen of the Desert is eye-poppingly extravagant, insanely glitzy and hugely entertaining.

Tickets only available via Darlington Operatic Society.
