Priscilla Queen of the Desert starring Jason Donovan comes to The New Victoria Theatre in Woking
Reach for your phone or your computer mouse to make sure you get one of the last few tickets to enjoy Priscilla Queen of the Desert at The New Victoria Theatre in Woking.
Starring the multi-talented Jason Donovan, the show runs for a week starting on Monday September 16 until Saturday September 21.
It was Jason who took on the role of Tick when the musical first opened in the West End and now he returns to step back into Tick’s psychadelic platform shoes for a week’s run in Woking.
His successful and varied career has seen him take on acting, dancing and singing roles, playing well-known stage characters as well as selling 13 million albums around the world as a recording artist.
Aside from Priscilla, Jason’s other West End credits include the title role in Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat and Caractacus Potts in Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, immortalised in film by Dick Van Dyke. 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.
This time, the former Neighbours heartthrob and Aussie export is joined by Richard Grieve as Bernadette, best known for playing Jonny Foster in Emmerdale.
Graham Weaver plays Felicia, a part he also played in the West End production.
Officially one of the Woking theatre’s biggest selling one-week musicals, Priscilla Queen of the Desert is based on the hit movie of the same name starring Hugo Weaving, Terence Stamp and Guy Pearce.
It is the same heartwarming story 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.
Sit back to enjoy a outrageous array of costumes and a host of dancefloor favorites including It’s Raining Men, Say a Little Prayer, Go West, Hot Stuff and Always on My Mind.
The musical originally opened in Australia in 2006 where it ran for two years before taking to the West End for another two-year run. It recently played an acclaimed season on Broadway, and has picked up numerous awards including the prestigious Olivier and Tony Awards for Best Costume Design.
