Posted: 6th September 2011
Priscilla Queen of the Desert

Opening in March 2009, the stage adaptation of Priscilla Queen of the Desert has proven a popular date on the calendar, but now fans must make note of an important date: 31st December 2011. Yes, it's new year's eve, but it's also the date the curtain falls on the West End production for the final time.

The show originally opened in Sydney in 2006, subsequently touring in Melbourne and New Zealand, and the world with productions in Toronto and recently, Broadway.

The cast has featured many stars over the years, opening with Neighbours' actor and singer Jason Donovan, and will close with another soap star, in the shape of Ray Meagher (Alf Stewart from Home and Away), reprising his role of Bob the mechanic (not builder) from 5th October.

Tickets range from £20 to £95, and we can tell you the New Year's Eve tickets are selling fast!

For a limited time, we have stalls tickets available at £47.99 (instead of the usual £66). This offer closes on 20th October and is only available for Monday to Friday performances. Click on the Book This Offer button, below, to check for availability.

Taking Priscilla's place at the Palace Theatre is another production from that recent hotbed of West End Transfers: Chichester Festival Theatre's - Singin' in the Rain.
