Full casting has been announced for the Essex professional premiere of glamorously feel-good musical, Priscilla, Queen of the Desert.

The show will premiere at the Queen’s Theatre in Hornchurch where it will run from April 27 – May 26. 

Mark Inscoe is thrilled to be reviving the role of Bernadette having previously performed the part in the West End production. 

Playing Tick is Tom Giles (Ragtime, Charing Cross Theatre; Muse of Fire, Shakespeare’s Globe) and Adam will be performed by Daniel Bailey (Motown the Musical, Shaftesbury Theatre; The Lion King, Lyceum Theatre). 

They will be joined by Miracle Chance, Michael Cuckson, Molly-Grace Cutler, Clara Darcy, Lemuel Knights, Natasha Lewis, Tom Self, Lauren Storer and Josh Tye. 

Priscilla, Queen of the Desert will be directed by the Queen’s Theatre’s Artistic Director Douglas Rintoul. He says, ‘Following on from our hit production of Made in Dagenham, I was keen to make another regional premiere of a great modern musical at the Queen’s Theatre. Priscilla, Queen of the Desert is absolutely ripe for a new, more intimate, stripped back, actor-musician midscale production. 

“The film blew me away back in the mid-1990s - it’s a great story of friendship and empowerment and is packed full of top tunes, fierceness, fun and poignancy - what more could one ask for?’

The uplifting and heart-warming production is based on the smash hit movie starring Terence Stamp and Guy Pearce and audiences are promised a highly entertaining new take on an iconic musical. 

They will also be providing a dementia-friendly performance of the show at the Queen’s on Thursday May 24 at 1.30pm in addition to an Audio Described Performance on Saturday May 19 at 2.30pm and a Sign Language Interpreted Performance on Wednesday May 16 at 7.30pm
