Cougar Morrison as Tick (Mitzi), Nick Mayer as Adam (Felicia), and Peter Rowsthorn as Bernadette, will reprise their roles as they make their own personal journeys of self-discovery while crossing the Australian desert in their battered old bus christened Priscilla.
This stage adaptation of the classic Australian film The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert tells the story of two Sydney drag artists, Tick and Adam, and a transgender woman, Bernadette, who are contracted to perform a drag show at a resort in Alice Springs at the behest of Tick’s ex-wife, Marion.
On the journey across the desert to Alice Springs, this unlikely trio encounters eccentric outback characters, misunderstandings both hilarious and serious, acceptance, love and the exuberance of performance. Things get even more complicated when Tick reveals his ulterior motive for the trip: he has an eight-year-old son he’s never seen who now wishes to meet his father.
With wardrobes of outrageous costumes and a catalogue of iconic pop songs such as It’s Raining Men; What’s Love Got to do with It; Shake Your Groove Thing; Hot Stuff; Boogie Wonderland and the classic LGBTQ+ anthem, I Will Survive, Priscilla Queen of the Desert is a celebration of everything that makes us human.
Priscilla Queen of the Desert hits Regal Theatre from Saturday, January 8 to Sunday, January 23, 2022. For more info and to buy tickets visit ticketek.com.au
