PRISCILLA Queen of the Desert The Musical
That magical musical bus known as PRISCILLA, Queen of the Desert, is rolling into Albury Wodonga, so make sure you get on board DARLINGS to enjoy this “must see” musical being premiered on the Border in 2022!!
Based on the 1994 smash-hit movie of the same name, PRISCILLA Queen of the Desert The Musical is the heartwarming, uplifting adventure of three friends who hop aboard a battered old bus searching for love and friendship and end up finding more than they had ever dreamed of. With a dazzling array of outrageous costumes and a hit parade of dancefloor favourites, this wildly fresh and funny musical is a journey to the heart of FABULOUS!
PRISCILLA follows the journey of two drag queens, Tick and Adam, and a transgender woman, Bernadette, as they travel across Australia in their bus, named PRISCILLA. Tick has been asked to perform at a hotel in Alice Springs by his estranged wife, Marion. Taking Adam and Bernadette along with him, the trio drive from Sydney to the remote resort town in the middle of the desert. Tick tells his companions that the trip is a favour to his wife, from whom he is separated, but does not reveal that he also has an 8-year-old son he does not know, but who now wants to meet his father. As they head west, Tick, Adam, and Bernadette learn to accept and support each other, whilst encountering a number of strange and colourful characters. After experiencing violent homophobic threats, Adam is forced to realise that not everyone is accepting of his flamboyant lifestyle, whilst Bernadette opens up to the possibility of love again following the death of her husband.
Upon reaching Alice Springs, Tick finally meets his son, Benjamin, who accepts his father’s homosexuality and drag queen persona. The trio perform at the resort and realise that they have forged a bond that will last forever. Full of well-known pop songs and supported by three divas, PRISCILLA Queen of the Desert The Musical is a flamboyant, funny, disco-fuelled musical that gets the audience up on their feet.
Featuring a hit parade of dancefloor magic including:
It’s Raining Men, I Say A Little Prayer, Venus, I Will Survive, Hot Stuff, Finally, Boogie Wonderland, Go West, Girls Just Wanna Have Fun, I Love The Nightlife and two Kylie Medleys.
