About Priscilla

Since Priscilla Queen of the Desert The Musical first captivated 100,000 New Zealanders during its six week run in 2008, the spectacular show has played sell-out seasons in London’s West End and on Broadway, toured internationally, and won numerous accolades along the way, including prestigious Olivier and Tony Awards.

Based on the Oscar-winning hit movie, Priscilla Queen of the Desert is the heart-warming, uplifting story of three drag artists who hop aboard a battered old bus named Priscilla, searching for love and friendship. They end up on a journey of self-discovery and the road trip of a lifetime.

This wildly fresh and funny musical features a hit parade of dance-floor favourites 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.

A dazzling sensory experience that will have you jumping out of your seat!
