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.
"Heels of Glory cannot be beaten and should be on everyone’s calendar to
experience as soon as possible.” —
Terry Eastham, London Theatre 1
Arch villainess Allura Supreme, pictured left, (Sarah-Louise Young) is about to execute an evil plan to annihilate every drag queen in the world.
Honey, a young drag queen, and Jay, her tomboy best friend, are all that stand in Allura's way.
Fabulous international drag superstar Splendorella, pictured right, (Topsie Redfern) is set to launch Supreme’s deadly new cosmetic at midnight. Will our heroes be in time to save the drag world?
“I hate musicals. I LOVED this one!”

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.
Heels made a triumphant return to the Chelsea Theatre as part of the London pride festival. Performances ran 9-26 June 2016. 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 June 2016 production of Heels of Glory was an official headline event of Pride in London 2016. The cast performed excerpts of the show, live on the Pride mainstage.
