Priscilla, Queen of the Desert

The iconic musical Priscilla Queen of the Desert is going on tour and comes to Edinburgh Playhouse in November 2019!

Priscilla, Queen of the Desert

About Priscilla, Queen of the Desert

With more glitter than ever before, this smash-hit show 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!

Based on the Oscar-winning film, Priscilla is the hilarious adventure of three friends who hop aboard a battered old bus bound for the Outback to put on the show of a lifetime. Their epic journey is a heart-warming story of self-discovery, sassiness and acceptance.

Mark Goucher is joining forces with first time producer Jason Donovan to create a brand new production of the much-loved glittering hit musical Priscilla, Queen of the Desert. The show makes a perfect vehicle for Donovan to begin his life as a producer, having performed in the cast of the original West End production and two subsequent UK tours. The producing team will be completed by Gavin Kalin and Matthew Gale.

The production will open in Dartford in September 2019 and will then tour throughout the UK and Ireland, including Edinburgh Playhouse from 4th – 9th November 2019.
