After a hugely successful season in Australia (it’s still going) Priscilla Queen of the Desert – The Musical will open in the Palace Theatre on London’s West End in March 2009. Our very own Tony Sheldon will be reprises his role as Bernadette while Jason Donovan will play Mitzi. The show had it’s launch yesterday in the UK. I can certainly say yesterday would not have been a dreary, grey down outside the Palace Theatre.
Priscilla Queen Of The Desert The Musical made its world premiere in Sydney in October 2006. has subsequently wowed audiences and critics alike in Melbourne and New Zealand to become the most successful Australian musical of all time. A Sydney return season due to popular demand will commence in October 2008 and plans are afoot for a North American production to open in Toronto and another in Germany in Autumn 2009. A Swedish production will open in 2010.
Auditions for the ensemble cast in the UK will be announced shortly. If you’re from the UK or on a working trip this is one musical you should definitely try out for!!
