I like to participate in life rather than be a spectator. Music, dancing, theatre, travelling, food, cycling and walking are some of my passions. Writing is an enjoyable pastime that allows me to share my experiences.
Priscilla is back and is revved up for a raging good time!
Priscilla Queen of the Desert – The Musical has returned to its ancestral home, Sydney for its ten-year anniversary tour. The Australian tour kicked off in Melbourne in January 2018 after which it headed to Sydney from May 13 to July 21 then on to Adelaide and Brisbane.
As well as the bright pink bus Tony Sheldon has returned to perform the role of the transgender Bernadette. He is joined on his journey to Alice Springs by David Harris[/LINK] as Tick and Euan Doidge[/LINK] as the Kylie obsessed Felicia. The high energy show packs a lot into the running time of two and half hours. The musical score features popular songs such as It's Raining Men, 'Go West', 'Don't Leave Me This Way' and 'True Colours' and will have you dancing in your seat.
The costumes are garish, full of bling and pizazz and are so over the top they bring added humour to the show. Priscilla deals with adult themes and is full of strong language, coarse humour and innuendos. It is unashamedly Aussie and a little bit 'daggy' but is uplifting and great fun.
Ultimately though Priscilla is a toe-tapping, feel-good show about acceptance and self-discovery which was well received with a resounding standing ovation on the evening we attended.
