The Project’s Steve Price today announced he will make his theatrical debut in a special one night only tailor-made guest role in Priscilla Queen of the Desert on Friday 6 April 7.30pm. To purchase tickets to the special performance go to priscillathemusical.com.au.

Steve said “I’ve always wanted to get up on stage and give it a go and the people of Priscilla are going to give me that chance. I guess now that I’ve been to the jungle, it’s time I went bush.”

Steve will be strapping into a pair of Bloodstones, donning flannelette and frocking up as part of Priscilla’s flora and fauna. To prepare for the role, he will have to undergo a theatre safety induction, costume fitting and several rehearsals with the cast ahead of his theatre debut.

Steve originally had his eye on the role of “Bob”, played by Aussie actor Robert Grubb, “I really wanted to be a part of the show but I couldn’t commit to 8 shows a week because of my Project and Macquarie Radio schedule. Probably for the best really as the cast of this show are incredible!”

The iconic hit show Priscilla Queen of the Desert opened at Melbourne’s Regent Theatre to rave reviews 30 January 2018.

Australia’s most successful home grown musical has travelled to 135 cities in 29 countries around the world since it premiered in Australia a decade ago. Following the Melbourne season the show will hit the road for Sydney, Adelaide and Brisbane as part of the 10 th anniversary celebration tour.

Featuring a dazzling array of more than 500 costumes, 200 headdresses and a non-stop hit parade of dance-floor classics including ‘IT’S RAINING MEN’, ‘I WILL SURVIVE’, ‘I LOVE THE NIGHTLIFE’ and ‘FINALLY’, the fabulously camp musical has more glitter than ever.

“I HEREBY CHRISTEN THIS BUDGET BARBIE CAMPER, PRISCILLA QUEEN OF THE DESERT.”

Based on the Oscar-winning Australian film, Priscilla Queen of the Desert is the hilarious story of three friends who hop aboard a battered old bus bound for Alice Springs to put on the show of a lifetime. The 1994 film starring Terence Stamp, Hugo Weaving and Guy Pearce remains one of Australia’s most successful films and soundtracks of all-time with a swag of awards in the trophy cabinet, including an Oscar for Best Costume Design.

The quintessentially Aussie story about mateship, self-discovery and acceptance was translated from screen to stage by Stephan Elliott and Allan Scott, directed by Simon Phillips, with the film’s acclaimed costume designers Tim Chappel and Lizzy Gardiner onboard, alongside stage designer Brian Thomson and co-choreographers Andrew Hallsworth and legendary Ross Coleman.

It’s been a rollicking ten-year around-the-world extravaganza for Priscilla. Since the musical last left Australia it has played award-winning stints on Broadway and in the West End, toured Argentina, Brazil, Canada, England, France, Germany, Greece, Hong Kong, Ireland, Italy, Israel, Japan, Korea, New Zealand, Northern Ireland, Philippines, Scotland, Singapore, South Africa, Spain, Sweden, The Netherlands, Wales and hit the high seas with Norwegian Cruise Lines. Future international productions will include seasons in Bangkok, Copenhagen, Mexico City, and return tours to France, Italy, Japan, Korea,
and the United Kingdom for the third time.

The fabulous all-Australian cast includes Tony and Olivier award nominated Tony Sheldon reprising his role of “Bernadette”, accomplished leading man David Harris as “Tick” and Kinky Boots and Les Misérables alumni Euan Doidge as “Felicia”, Robert Grubb as outback mechanic “Bob”; Kinky Boots alumni Emma Powell as burly bartender “Shirl” and Blake Appelqvist as “Miss Understanding”; Adele Parkinson as hotel entertainment manager “Marion”; Angelique Cassimatis, Samm Hagen and Cle Morgan as sassy disco singers “The Divas”; and reprising her role from the original Australian production, Lena Cruz as Bob’s wife “Cynthia”. Jakob Ambrose, Michelle Barr, Xander Ellis, Mitchell Fistrovic, Tom Handley, Haydan Hawkins, Luke Jarvis, Joe Kosky, Leonard Mickelo, Adam Noviello, Shannen Quan, Glaston Toft and Patrick Whitbread also feature.

Priscilla Queen of the Desert is presented by Michael Cassel Group and Nullarbor Productions in association with MGM on Stage.
