What is Priscilla Queen of the Desert about?
Priscilla Queen of the Desert is a smash hit musical that tells the story of two drag queens and a transgender woman, who sign up to perform their hit show in the unlikeliest place – Alice Springs, a remote town in the Australian desert.
As they leave the surrounds of cosmopolitan Sydney aboard their battered old bus, Priscilla, the three friends come to the forefront of a comedy of errors, encountering a number of strange characters, as well as incidents of homophobia, while widening their comfort zones and finding new horizons.
Priscilla Queen of the Desert is adapted from the 1994 Oscar winning film, The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert. It has a book by Stephan Elliott and Allan Scott. Music is from various artists.
Priscilla premiered to critical acclaim at the Lyric Theatre in Sydney Australia in 2007 where it ran for 1 year, before transferring to the Regent Theatre in Melbourne. It then transferred to New Zealand before returning to Sydney for its final performances.
The West End production opened at the Palace Theatre in London on 10 March 2009 running until 31 December 2011.

Since leaving the West End Priscilla Queen of the Desert has toured the UK where it has been rapturously received in many towns and cities. The show is due to tour in 2019 with Joe McFadden and Duncan James sharing the role of Tik.
