Producers today announce the dates for the stage show spectacular PRISCILLA QUEEN OF THE DESERT at The Civic in Auckland in 2016.
Eight years and several thousand kilometres later, and looking more fabulous than ever, the pink bus makes a triumphant return to Auckland on 14 October and will run for a strictly limited season.
Tickets to this journey to the heart of FABULOUS go on sale to the general public at 5pm on Friday while the pre-sale via select ticketing agencies begins today.
This wildly fresh and funny musical based on the Oscar-winning film features a hit parade of dance-floor favorites, over 500 outrageous costumes, 200 extraordinary headdresses and a 10 metre long customised bus weighing 6 tonnes as its sparkling centrepiece – PRISCILLA QUEEN OF THE DESERT is a must-see spectacular!
The record-breaking stage spectacular that sold 100,000 tickets in the six amazing weeks it was here in 2008 will feature an international touring cast and returns to our shores by popular demand, brought by the producers of the smash hit Cats as well as Singin’ In The Rain, The Sound of Music and Annie.
PRISCILLA QUEEN OF THE DESERT has already been seen by close to 5 million people and grossed in excess of $300 million worldwide to become the most successful Australian musical of all time.
Producer Garry McQuinn says that one of the great highlights of Priscilla’s first Australasian tour was the wonderful reception it received from the New Zealand audience at The Civic.
“A decade later in 2016, our pink bus will return. She’s done a few kilometres since then – having been around the world a number of times with 17 international productions … including those on the West End and Broadway. She’s more fabulous than ever and I’m delighted to be bringing her back.”
