Priscilla, Queen of the Desert is a jukebox musical with book by Australian film director-writer Stephan Elliott and Allan Scott, using well-known pop songs as its score. Adapted from Elliott's 1994 film The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert, the musical tells the story of two drag queens and a trans woman, who contract to perform a drag show at a resort in Alice Springs, a resort town in the remote Australian desert. As they head west from Sydney aboard their lavender 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 comfort zones and finding new horizons.
About our show:
October 2022 - Priscilla was staged at the Athenaeum, and just so happened to be the most person intensive show ever to grace the Warminster stage, Costumes, Costumes and more Costumes was the order of the day, and quick changes, that required a full back stage team as well as those on stage. WOW what a show.
