Take an Aussie road movie; turn it into a Broadway-style extravaganza; add a healthy dose of plot that explores issues of sex, gender, love and ageing; finish with a bus-load of sequins and what do you get? Priscilla, Queen of the Desert! Yay!
Starring Strictly Come Dancing winner Joe McFadden as Tick and Mitzi, Priscilla is the hilarious but heart-warming adventure of three friends who hop aboard a battered old bus bound for the Outback to put on the show of a lifetime. On the way there’s plenty of time for self-discovery, the celebration of diversity and a dawning understanding of human nature.
With more glitter and sassiness than ever before, this smash hit show features a dazzling array of stunning costumes, fabulous feathers and a non-stop parade of dancefloor classics starting, of course, with It’s Raining Men!
Priscilla wouldn’t be the same without that Oz (and now Brit) national treasure, Jason Donovan. And though he’s hung up his ‘flip-flop’ mini dress, Jason is back – this time in the producer’s chair.
Jason says: “Having spent years performing and always harbouring the desire to become more involved in the creative process, I am delighted to be joining Mark Goucher as producer on this wonderful show. Priscilla is such a wonderful Australian story about diversity. It is a modern musical with a great heart.”
Joining Joe McFadden in the cast are Miles Western, who plays Bernadette, and Nick Hayes as Adam and Felicia.
It’s gonna be Hot Stuff!
