Heels of Glory is an original musical written by Tricity Vogue and composed by Richard Link, with an action adventure plot and tunes that would have graced a vintage Bond movie — if they’d ever got 007 in drag.
Directed by Stephen Heatley, UBC Theatre and Film Department Head, it starred Topsie Redfern as Splendorella, Sarah-Louise Young as Allura Supreme, Clare Humphrey as Jay, Thomas Young as Honey, and Fancy Chance, Kiki Lovechild, Dott Cotton and Adam Valentine as Henchmen/Drag Queen Prisoners in the two sold out shows at The Chelsea Theatre on January 28 & 29, 2015.
The show returns to the Chelsea Theatre as part of the London Pride Festival in June 2016.
A young drag queen and her tomboy best friend are all that stand in the way of arch villainess Allura Supreme (Sarah-Louise Young) and her evil plan to annihilate every drag queen in the world. Fabulous international drag superstar Splendorella (Topsie Redfern) is set to launch Supreme’s deadly new cosmetic at midnight.
Will our heroes be in time to save the drag world?
