The big silver bus has arrived! From this week, Adelaide audiences can shake their groove thing with Australia’s most successful homegrown musical, Priscilla Queen of the Desert, performing at Adelaide Festival Centre’s
Festival Theatre until 15 September, 2018.
This is the first time the award-winning musical will play in Adelaide,
and we’re giving away tickets to celebrate! Enter below.
Featuring a dazzling array of more than 500 costumes, 200 headdresses and a non-stop hit parade of dance-floor classics including IT’S RAINING MEN, I WILL SURVIVE, I LOVE THE NIGHTLIFE and FINALLY, this fabulous production has more glitter than ever.
Australian theatre royalty Tony Sheldon has returned to reprise the role of “Bernadette”. He has frocked up more than 1800 times across the globe, earning Tony and Olivier nominations for the role. Joining him on the bus is accomplished leading man David Harris as “Tick” and Kinky Boots and Les Misérables alumni Euan Doidge as “Felicia”.
Based on the Oscar-winning Australian film, Priscilla Queen of the Desert is the hilarious story of three friends who hop aboard a battered old bus in Sydney bound for Alice Springs to put on the show of a lifetime.
The 1994 film starring Terence Stamp, Hugo Weaving and Guy Pearce remains one of Australia’s most successful films and soundtracks of all-time with a swag of awards in the trophy cabinet, including an Oscar for Best Costume Design.
The iconic hit production is back after a rollicking ten-year around-the-world extravaganza– including award-winning stints on Broadway and in the West End.
