Priscilla, Queen of the Desert

Get ready for the ride of your life with Australia’s glittering musical masterpiece! 

With a spectacular array of outrageous costumes, flamboyant choreography, and a hit parade of dancefloor favourites, this wildly fresh and funny musical is a journey to the heart of FABULOUS!

Based on the Academy Award®-winning film, this sparkling stage adaptation follows three dazzling drag queens – Mitzi, Felicia, and Bernadette – as they set out on a hilarious adventure across the Australian outback in a battered old bus (nicknamed Priscilla) to put on a show in a remote resort town. Along the way, a heartwarming story of acceptance and self-discovery unfolds.

Shake your groove thing to classic disco hits including “It’s Raining Men,” “I Will Survive,” “Hot Stuff,” “I Say A Little Prayer,” “Finally,” and many more! If you rocked out to Kinky Boots or Rock of Ages, you won’t want to miss this bold blockbuster musical hailed as ‘The best feel-good show since Mamma Mia!’!

Recommended for ages 13 and up. This production contains mature themes and strong language.
