Heels of Glory
Heels of Glory is an original musical with an action adventure plot and tunes that would have graced a vintage Bond movie — if they’d ever got 007 in drag.
“Cannot be beaten and should be on everyone’s calendar to experience as soon as possible.” “A crowd pleasing and highly entertaining show...you are in for a fabulous evening.” —Terry Eastham, London Theatre 1

Splendorella

Arch villainess Allura Supreme (Sarah-Louise Young, left) is about to execute an evil plan to annihilate every drag queen in the world.

Honey and JayHoney, a young drag queen, and Jay, her Bond-loving tomboy best friend (Matthew Floyd Jones and Susan Harrison, right) are all that stand in Allura's way.

Fabulous international drag superstar Splendorella (Topsie Redfern, left) is set to launch Supreme’s deadly new cosmetic at midnight.

Will our heroes be in time to save the drag world?

“A musical mix of James Bond, panto and Eurovision, done incredibly well and with real heart.” “Chaos, humour and ingenious songs carry the story to the surprising but brilliant finale!” —Everything Theatre
   
“I hate musicals. I LOVED this one!”
— Audience member
Heels made a triumphant return to the Chelsea Theatre as part of the London pride festival. Performances ran 9-26 June 2016, and the DVD gift set is now available. Concessionary rates were available to everyone who came in drag, and VIP front-row cabaret table seating was provided for the most fabulously dressed. Splendorella and the gang were delighted to welcome so many of you back to the Chelsea.
The show turns the action genre cliché on its head, replacing violent gun culture and gender stereotyping with the inventiveness, bravery and nonconformity of drag. Musical theatre artists perform alongside drag stars, actors work with clowns, jazz musicians perform with cabaret singers, and solo artists are part of an ensemble. The cast plays a diverse group of LGBT+ heroes who offer alternative role models, discovering universal themes of acceptance, courage and identity. They do so with style, creating a glamorous world in which audiences enjoy spending two hours.
  The June 2016 production was an official headline event of Pride in London 2016. In addition to the three weeks of performances, the cast performed excerpts of the show live on the Pride mainstage.
