Starring Blue’s Duncan James, Priscilla tells the story of the heart-warming, uplifting adventure of three friends who hop aboard a battered old bus searching for love and friendship and end up finding more than they could have ever dreamed of. With a dazzling array of outrageous costumes and a hit parade of dancefloor favourites including It’s Raining Men, Say a Little Prayer, Go West, Hot Stuff and Always on My Mind, this wildly fresh and funny new musical is a journey to the heart of fabulous!

Based on the popular film of the same namee, Priscilla Queen of the Desert, the Musical originally opened in Australia and, after a sell-out two year run, opened in London’s West End followed by Broadway in the US. It has won numerous awards all over the world, including prestigious Olivier and Tony awards.
