Priscilla Queen of the Desert

Get ready for the musical journey of your life! Based on the Oscar-winning hit movie, PRISCILLA QUEEN OF THE DESERT is the heart-warming, uplifting story of three drag artists who hop aboard a battered old bus named Priscilla, searching for love and friendship. They end up on a journey of self-discovery and the road trip of a lifetime. This wildly fresh and funny adult musical with its multi-talented all South African cast features a hit parade of dance-floor favourites including: Don`t Leave Me This Way, I Will Survive, Finally, I Love The Nightlife, Go West, Hot Stuff, Colour My World and Shake Your Groove Thing. With a dazzling array of over 500 outrageous costumes, 200 extraordinary headdresses, 23 tons of scenery, and a 10 metre long customised bus weighing six tons as its sparkling centrepiece, PRISCILLA is a must-see spectacular! From the West End to Broadway and beyond this ultimate feel-good show is a massive hit!
