About this program

1:00 to 2:00 p.m.

BETTE MIDLER proudly presents the most OUTRAGEOUSLY FUN Broadway musical: PRISCILLA QUEEN OF THE DESERT! This spectacular show tells the uplifting story of a trio of friends on a road trip of a lifetime, who hop aboard a battered old bus searching for love and friendship in the middle of the Australian outback and end up finding more than they could ever have dreamed.  An international hit with over 500 dazzling, 2011 Tony® Award-winning costumes, PRISCILLA features a hit parade of dance-floor favorites including “It’s Raining Men,” “Finally” and “I Will Survive.” The Hollywood Reporter calls PRISCILLA “funny and fabulous!  Joyous entertainment with eye-popping visuals and unexpected heart!”

Through a panel (cast and crew) interview and Q&A session, students gain an understanding of the educational background, training, skills and competencies related to specific career fields in the performing arts directly from Broadway professionals.

Careers in the Performing Arts enriches your students’ classroom experience and is a joint educational initiative of PlayhouseSquare and WVIZ/PBS and 90.3 WCPN ideastream.
Teachers benefit from bringing professionals right into the classroom through the technology of distance learning!  Our Teacher’s Guide connects the experience to the classroom curriculum.
