Priscilla, Queen of the Desert

Friday 24 Mar 2017

CATCH THIS BUS ...because it is all kinds of FABULOUS!

Priscilla, Queen of the Desert has been captivating audiences worldwide since it debuted in 2006. It has played sold out seasons in Sydney, London’s West End and on Broadway, toured internationally, and won numerous accolades along the way, including prestigious Olivier and Tony Awards.

Love, Friendship and Family

Based on the 1994 Oscar-winning hit movie, Priscilla, Queen of the Desert is an uplifting story of two Sydney drag artists and a transsexual, who hop aboard a battered old bus named Priscilla, searching for love, friendship and family. Their journey of self-discovery takes them on a road trip to the heartland of Australia where they find more that they could have ever dreamed of.

The heart of the story centres on a tale of love and acceptance, and learning to celebrate who we are, with all our quirks and charms. The fact that this story is told with a pastiche of booty-shaking hits with more glitz and glamour than any closet can contain is the joy behind it all.

Hit Parade of Dance Floor Classics

With a dazzling array of over 500 outrageous costumes, 200 magnificent headdresses, a spectacular bus and a hit parade of dance floor classics including: ‘Don’t Leave Me This Way’, ‘I Will Survive’, ‘Finally’, ‘I Love The Nightlife’, ‘Go West’, ‘Hot Stuff’, ‘Colour My World’ and ‘Shake Your Groove Thing’, Priscilla is the joyous party you must not miss in 2017.

Come and join the celebration, throw aside your inhibitions, and immerse yourself in the splendour that is Priscilla, Queen of the Desert. Grab your Showbiz Christchurch ticket for the bus trip of a lifetime!
