Get ready to shake your groove thing as Australia’s most successful homegrown musical Priscilla Queen of the Desert rocks in to Brisbane this month.
The iconic hit musical has more glitter than ever, featuring a dazzling array of more than 500 award-winning costumes, 200 headdresses and a nonstop parade of dance-floor classics including “It’s Raining Men”, “I Will Survive”, “I Love The Nightlife”, “Finally”, and many more.
Based on the Oscar-winning film, Priscilla is the hilarious adventure of three friends who hop aboard a battered old bus bound for Alice Springs to put on the show of a lifetime. Their epic journey is a heart-warming story of self-discovery, sassiness and acceptance.
Returning home from Broadway to reprise the role he created in the Australian premiere production, Tony and Olivier nominated actor Tony Sheldon is back in the driver seat as Bernadette. By his side with feather boas at the ready will be David Harris (Legally Blonde, Miss Saigon) as Tick and Euan Doidge (Les Misérables, Kinky Boots) as Felicia. Home and Away’s Alf Stewart, Ray Meagher, will reprise his role as outback mechanic “Bob” after playing it in the original 2007 Sydney production of Priscilla, on the West End and in New Zealand.
After winning a glittering array of international awards on Broadway, the West End, Europe and Asia, Simon Phillips’ spectacular production Priscilla Queen of the Desert will have its Brisbane Premiere at the Lyric Theatre, QPAC September 2018 as part of its 10th anniversary celebration tour.
