Why See Priscilla Queen Of The Desert?

Based on the Oscar award-winning film, Priscilla tells the story of Tick, Bernadette and Adam, a glamorous Sydney-based performing trio that agree to take their show to the middle of the Australian outback.

Priscilla is a heart-warming, uplifting adventure of three friends who hop aboard a battered old bus (nicknamed Priscilla) searching for love and friendship and end up finding more than they could ever have dreamed.

With a dazzling array of outrageous costumes and featuring a score of dance-floor classics, this wildly fresh and funny new musical is a sensational journey to the heart of fabulous.
