ArtsEd presented Priscilla Queen of the Desert, which opened in The Andrew Lloyd Webber Foundation Theatre.

The story: Drag queens Tick and Adam, and a trans woman, Bernadette, go on a road trip through the Australian outback when Tick's estranged wife calls in a favour.

 

Their unreliable tour bus, Priscilla, takes them on a voyage of discovery – encountering redneck homophobia, new love and self-acceptance on the way to giving the performance of their lives. Based on the award-winning 1994 film, Priscilla Queen of the Desert has a contagiously upbeat soundtrack of disco hits. 

This glorious show filled with glitz and glamour was reimagined by the creative team with energetic and characterful dance routines, bold and courageous storytelling and a dazzling array of ingenious costumes.

“The ArtsEd production of Priscilla, Queen of The Desert was an exciting, vibrant and raised the bar in the standard of Drama School productions. This was delivered by a wonderful creative team. Anthony Whiteman’s choreography was stylish, varied and really showed the students off enabling them to be individual, creative and wonderfully energised”
