As previously announced, DUNCAN JAMES will be starring in the role of ‘Tick’ at the venues detailed below.

JASON DONOVAN reprises the role of ‘Tick’, the part he played when the show originally opened in the West End and its subsequent tour in 2013. He has had a hugely successful and varied career as both an actor and world-wide recording artist, selling over 13 million albums to date.  As well as “Priscilla Queen of the Desert” his other West End credits include the title role in “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat” and ‘Caractacus Potts’ in “Chitty Chitty Bang Bang”. His touring credits include ‘Captain Von Trapp’ in “The Sound of Music”, ‘Frank N Furter’ in “The Rocky Horror Show”, the title role in John Doyle’s production of Stephen Sondheim’s “Sweeney Todd” and ‘The Artilleryman’ in “The War of the Worlds”. He can currently be seen as ‘Lionel Logue’ in “The King’s Speech”. His television credits include “Neighbours” and “Echo Beach”. He was also a finalist in ITV’s smash hit “I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here!” and reached the final of “Strictly Come Dancing”.

Get ready for the ride of your life! Based on the movie, PRISCILLA QUEEN OF THE DESERT THE MUSICAL is the heart-warming, uplifting adventure of three friends who hop aboard a battered old bus searching for love and friendship and end up finding more than they could have ever dreamed of. With a dazzling array of outrageous costumes and a hit parade of dancefloor favorites including ‘It’s Raining Men’, ‘Say a Little Prayer’, ‘Go West’, ‘Hot Stuff’ and ‘Always on My Mind’, this wildly fresh and funny new musical is a journey to the heart of FABULOUS! 

 

PRISCILLA QUEEN OF THE DESERT THE MUSICAL originally opened in Australia and after a sell-out two year run, opened in London’s West End followed by Broadway in the United States. It has won numerous awards all over the world, including prestigious Olivier and Tony awards.
