OUT­BACK ES­CAPADES

Herald Sun - Switched On - - Front Page -

I WILL Sur­vive, out to dis­cover the ul­ti­mate singer, dancer and ac­tor, is a com­pe­ti­tion with a dif­fer­ence. No sur­prise, given the essence of the movie and mu­si­cal Priscilla, Queen of the Desert weaves its way through each episode, with per­for­mances set against the back­drop of the out­back. Twelve male con­tes­tants have been se­lected for the trip — first stop Dubbo — on the leg­endary sil­ver Priscilla bus. The con­tes­tants arrive in a dif­fer­ent out­back lo­ca­tion each week, where they ‘‘must per­form out of their com­fort zone, in or­di­nary places, with or­di­nary peo­ple, prov­ing they are ex­tra­or­di­nary per­form­ers’’. They are in the hunt for $250,000 cash, with the last man stand­ing ar­riv­ing on Broad­way with guar­an­teed agency rep­re­sen­ta­tion. Ja­son Dono­van and Stephan El­liott will be be joined by guest judges in­clud­ing Rachael Tay­lor, Asher Ked­die and Magda Szuban­ski.
