The Ruby Slippers
  • UK Regional & Tours

After a hugely successful tour in 2016, including London's West End, the brilliantly entertaining and heartwarming comedy drama The Ruby Slippers makes a welcome return to Liverpool for 2018 - as part of the official Liverpool Pride programme.

Throw on your high heels, slap on your lipstick and get ready to strut your stuff down to The Ruby Slippers drag bar, where the power of love and personal identity are about to be pushed to the limit, and secrets are about to be revealed.

This riotous comedy by Break A Leg Productions in association with Bill Elms includes a stellar cast including Kurtis Stacey (Emmerdale), James Rogerson (The Last Five Years), Owen Richard Farrow (BBC's All Together Now as drag artist Divina De Campo), Debra Redcliffe (Coronation Street), Emma Vaudrey (Twopence To Cross The Mersey) and Jordan Simms (Sharon Needles and Alaska 5000 Halloween Special).

Life is a drag at The Ruby Slippers, Blackpool's struggling cabaret drag club.

Owner Raz (Rogerson) thinks he has met the man of his dreams in barman and flatmate Ryan (Stacey). But is that about to change when Ryan confesses he has been hiding a secret - that he wants to become a woman?

Their relationship is put to the test as Ryan deals with the struggles of transitioning to Rachel.

On top of that a rival club has opened which threatens to not only steal Raz's customers but also his star acts - the hilarious and outrageous drag queens Phoenix (Simms) and Destiny (Farrow).

Can true love overcome any obstacle? Will Phoenix and Destiny be swayed to leave The Ruby Slippers and join its rival? Loyalties will be put to the test as the campest club gets ready to open its drag doors once more.

So, grab yourself a ticket and drag your man, wife, mother and gran to The Ruby Slippers.

Please note - the bar will close 15 minutes before the advertised start time.

There are no booking fees payable (hurrah!)
