The Pink Bus Returns
Eight years, several thousand kilometres later, and looking more fabulous than ever, the pink bus makes a triumphant return to Auckland!
Since PRISCILLA QUEEN OF THE DESERT, THE MUSICAL first captivated 100,000 NewZealanders during its six week run in 2008, the spectacular show has played sell-out seasons in London’s West End and on Broadway, toured internationally, and won numerous accolades along the way, including prestigious Olivier and Tony Awards.
Based on the Oscar-winning hit movie, PRISCILLA QUEEN OF THE DESERT is the heartwarming, uplifting story of three drag artists who hop aboard a battered old bus named Priscilla, searching for love and friendship. They end up on a journey of self-discovery and the road trip of a lifetime.
This wildly fresh and funny musical features a hit parade of dance-floor favourites including: Don’t Leave Me This Way, I Will Survive, Finally, I Love The Nightlife, Go West, Hot Stuff, Colour My World and Shake Your Groove Thing.
With a dazzling array of over 500 outrageous costumes, 200 extraordinary headdresses,23 tonnes of scenery, and a 10 metre long customised bus weighing six tonnes as its sparkling centre piece, PRISCILLA is a must-see spectacular!
