Get ready to shake your groove thing as Australia’s most successful homegrown musical Priscilla Queen of the Desert is now playing at the Capitol Theatre.

The iconic hit musical has more glitter than ever, featuring a dazzling array of more than 500 award-winning costumes, 200 headdresses and a nonstop parade of dance-floor classics including IT’S RAINING MEN, I WILL SURVIVE, I LOVE THE NIGHTLIFE, FINALLY, and many more.

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.

Returning home from Broadway to reprise the role he created in the Australian premiere production, Tony and Olivier nominated actor Tony Sheldon is back in the driver seat as Bernadette. By his side with feather boas at the ready will be David Harris (Legally Blonde, Miss Saigon) as Tick and Euan Doidge (Les Misérables, Kinky Boots) as Felicia.

Running Time: Approximately 2 hours and 30 mins including a 20 min interval.

Age Recommendation:  This production contains strong language. Recommended for age 14 and above. Parental supervision is recommended.  

  • "FEATHERED FABULOUSNESS & SEQUINED SPLENDOUR"

    The Stage, UK
