PRISCILLA QUEEN OF THE DESERT TOUR
Priscilla Queen of the Desert the Musical is based on the Oscar® award-winning film starring Terence Stamp and Guy Pearce.
It recently played to great success in London West End at the Palace Theatre ending its run at the end of 2011. Written by Stephan Elliott and Allan Scott, Priscilla Quen of the Desert is about to embark on the UK tour.
It tells the story of Tick, Bernadette and Adam: two gay men and a transexual woman who are a very glam performing trio who live in Sydney but want to take their show to the middle of the Australian outback.
Priscilla is a heart-warming and uplifting adventure of the three friends' search for love and friendship on a battered old bus (Priscilla). But they end up finding more than they could ever have dreamed of.
