A brand-new production of the hit musical Priscilla, Queen of the Desert, will be heading to Edinburgh next year. Former soap star Jason Donovan, in his first production role, will team up with Mark Goucher for the cult classic show which will visit the Edinburgh Playhouse in November next year as part of a UK tour.
Donovan has already performed in the London West End production of the show and he is keen to get more into production. The Australian star said:
“Having spent years performing and always harbouring the desire to become more involved in the creative process, I am delighted to be joining Mark Goucher as producer on this wonderful show. Priscilla is perfect vehicle to venture into the world of producing and bringing all my experience on the show seems the logical next step. Priscilla is such a wonderful Australian story about diversity. It is a modern musical with a great heart.”
The iconic hit musical has more glitter than ever before, featuring 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, Finally and many more.
Based on the Oscar-winning film, Priscilla is the story 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.
Priscilla, Queen of the Desert will be at the Edinburgh Playhouse from 4th to 9th November 2019. Tickets on sale here from Friday 14th September 2018.
