Priscilla Queen of the Desert comes to Manchester this February, and brings with it all the glitz, glam and glitter of its previous success. The show tells the story of three friends on a bus road trip across America, and how their search for love and friendship opens the way for even more exciting discoveries. With classic pop songs such as It’s Raining Men littered throughout the show, this musical will get you up out of your seat and dancing along with those on stage.

Since opening in Australia in 2006 Priscilla Queen of the Desert has lit up stages in the West End and, recently, Broadway, delighting audiences from all across the world. As well as gaining incredible reviews from many reviewers, the musical has also won many awards, including the Oliver and Tony awards for Best Costume Design. Priscilla hits The Palace’s stage with Jason Donavon, Richard Grieve and Graham Weaver for one week only, so be sure to grab your tickets soon and not miss out on this colourful, crazy and fabulous musical.

Priscilla Queen of the Desert runs from 17th to 22nd February at The Palace Theatre
