Priscilla, Queen of the Desert arrives in Bradford in September

The 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, Finally, and many more.

Based on the Oscar-winning film, PRISCILLA is the hilarious adventure 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.

This is Jason Donovan’s first time as a producer, having performed in the cast of the original West End production and two subsequent UK tours.

Joe McFadden, who will play Tick/Mitzi, described the new production as ‘inventive’ and said: “That’s what’s so exciting, because it’s a brand-new production, it’s a whole new design … it is going to be really interesting and different from perhaps the show that people might have seen before.”

Jason Donovan said the show had ‘universal themes of overcoming prejudice and adversity’ and added: “It tackles people wanting to be different and simultaneously the way in which we’re all really the same underneath. I think the music is great but it was born out of a great story too.”

Other main roles go to Olivier Award Winner Miles Western will take on the role as Bernadette and Nick Hayes will play Adam/Felicia.
