Cinewilde presents Priscilla Queen of the Desert and Amatuer Drag Contest at

This event has already happened

On August 10th, 1994 "Priscilla, Queen of the Desert" set forth on a heartwarming journey carrying two wayward drag-queens and one trans-woman who find more than a blooming onion in the Australian Outback.

On August 18th, 2017 we will pay homage to that fabulous bus and her fierce crew!

And it wouldn't be Priscilla at The Texas Theatre without CinéWilde's Annual "Queen of the Desert" Amateur Drag Contest! Drag queens and kings welcome! Drag of any and all kind welcome! ***Richard Curtin, the Godmother of Drag in Dallas (also known as Edna Jean Robinson in some circles) will be emceeing the contest. And we have prizes from Dallas Theater Center, Common Ground Games, and more!

If you always dreamed about pulling the wig down from the shelf and putting on some make up, you’ll want to be at the Texas Theatre Friday, August 18th!

Bring a CD containing your one song (no more than 3 mins) and sissy that walk! And bring those one dollar bills (or $5's) y'all! These queens and kings will be working hard to MAKE IT RAIN!
