Actor, radio host and musical theatre star Jason Donovan is branching out into producing musicals.
The former Neighbour’s star is joining forces with March Goucher to produce a new production of hit musical Priscilla, Queen of the Desert.
Based on the Oscar-winning film, PRISCILLA is the hilarious adventure of three friends who hop aboard a battered old bus bound for Alice Springs to put on the show of a lifetime. Their epic journey is a heart-warming story of self-discovery, sassiness and acceptance.
The first time Producer said “Having spent years performing and always harbouring the desire to become more involved in the creative process, I am delighted to be joining Mark Goucher as a Producer on this wonderful show.”
Donovan knows the show well having performed in the original West End production as well as two subsequent UK tours.
Priscilla, Queen of the Desert features a dazzling array of stunning costumes, fabulous feathers and a non-stop parade of dance-floor classics including It’s Raining Men, I Will Survive, I Love The Nightlife and Finally
This brand new production comes from the team behind the critically acclaimed UK tours of Hairspray; with direction by Paul Kerryson, choreography by Tom Jackson-Greaves with designs by Phil R Daniels and Charles Cusick Smith.
The production will open in Dartford in September 2019 and will then tour throughout the UK and Ireland.
