Sedos presents a new sell-out production of the award-winning musical Priscilla Queen of the Desert at the Bridewell Theatre, off Fleet Street, from 22nd November – 2nd December 2017. The musical, which has book by Stephan Elliott and Allan Scott, is based on the 1994 Oscar winning Latent Image/Specific Films Motion Picture distributed by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Inc.
The critically-acclaimed stage musical version of Priscilla has played to packed houses all over the world during its 11-year journey since its premiere in Sydney in 2006. Sedos’ new production of Priscilla promises a vibrant and energetic production – with a cast of 25, many of whom are featuring in their first Sedos production.
A colourful and vibrant spectacular featuring all-time dance and pop hits from the 80’s and 90’s, the story follows the adventure of three friends brought together under unique circumstances. They travel in a wonderfully quirky bus from the glamour and sparkle of Sydney as they ‘Go West’ into the heart of the Australian desert continent.
The production has direction by Angus Jacobs, musical direction by Ryan Macaulay and choreography by Eloise Horton.
Director Angus Jacobs said: “We are thrilled to be bringing our special touch to this wonderful production and even more so that the run is completely sold out. We have designed some stunning original costumes for this production and coupled with the unique challenges (or opportunities!) presented by getting a moving bus onto the stage of the Bridewell Theatre, we are really thrilled with our fresh take on the show.
“From our first workshops back in July to our opening night later this month, the team have worked so hard and we can’t wait to share ‘our Priscilla’ with the audience.”
Since 2012 Sedos has been the resident theatre company at the Bridewell Theatre.
