A salacious queer Christmas cabaret retells a classic tale from the team that created XXXmas Carol at Wales Millennium Centre from December 8-31, 2022.
After the huge success of last year’s XXXmas Carol, Wales Millennium Centre returns with another queer alternative Christmas show directed by Duncan Hallis, bringing drag, musical theatre and burlesque to the land of the snow queen in The Lion, The B!tch and The Wardrobe.
Audiences are invited to step into another world filled with flirty fauns, wicked wolves, a couple of beavers and the baddest b!tch of them all – Cardiff drag legend Polly Amorous. She’s been rummaging deep in her wardrobe to find some presents, and what has she pulled out? Dazzling drag, sensational circus, sickening songs, bewitching burlesque, and some tinsel handcuffs! It’s always winter in Narnia, but that doesn’t mean it’s not going to get H.O.T. in the company of Rahim El Habachi, Foo Foo LaBelle, Bunmi Odumosu, Eric McGill, Asha Jane and Felix Sürbe.
Wales Millennium Centre’s cabaret producer Peter Darney says, “Last year’s show was a total vibe! With circus, drag, burlesque, boy-lesque, belly dancing, music and general mayhem – it was unlike anything ever seen in Cardiff before. This year, we have the same team coming back to build on from where they left off, and they’ve been thinking about it all year so this time it won’t just be a vibe; it’s going to be Iconic!”
Polly Amorous added: “I’m ecstatic to be back at Wales Millennium Centre Centre for the second coming of XXXmas this December. After the phenomenal response from our first show as a little queer collective, it only made sense for us to come back and do it all again! I’ve always been a huge fan of the Chronicles of Narnia, so I’m so hyped to come out of the closet and enter a world full of beavers, vicious white women and fabulous wardrobes – though thinking about it, that’s not too far removed from life as a drag queen…”
The show is suitable for ages 18+ (Contains adult content, nudity, strong language, loud bangs and strobe lighting.)
