‘PRISCILLA’ AT THE REGENT
“Priscilla Queen of the Desert” is wowing audiences at Melbourne’s Regent Theatre. This iconic Australian musical is based on the Oscar-winning Australian film of the same name. It tells of three friends who hop aboard a battered old bus bound for Alice Springs to put on the show of a lifetime. Their epic journey is a heart-warming story of selfdiscovery, sassiness and acceptance. Like the movie, the stage show features plenty of glitter, an array of more than 500 costumes, 200 headdresses and a nonstop hit parade of dancefloor classics including “It’s Raining Men”, “I will Survive” and “Finally”. The production stars Tony Sheldon as Bernadette, David Harris as Tick and Euan Doidge as Felicia. Supporting these three leads are Robert Grubb as outback mechanic Bob, Emma Powell as burly bartender Shirl, Blake Appelqvist as Miss Understanding, Adele Parkinson as hotel entertainment manager Marion, plus Angelique Cassimatis, Samm Hagen and Cle Morgan as sassy disco singers The Divas and Lena Cruz as Bob’s wife Cynthia.
