Forget the January blues - if it’s an evening of fun and laughter you’re after, head to Nottingham’s Royal Concert Hall to see Priscilla Queen of the Desert.

Get ready for the most flamboyant bus ride of your life as Aussie legend Jason Donovan stars as Tick and his alter-ego Mitzi in a story of three drag queens heading to the unknown of Alice Springs away from the safe bright lights of Sydney.

Alongside wild child Adam/Felicia (Robin Mills) and drag veteran Bernadette (Simon Green), Tick’s mission is to drive across Australia to see wife Marion (Naomi Slights) and estranged young son Benji (Toby Gretton/William Rhead).

Based on the smash-hit movie, there’s a real feel-good factor to this show, with a quite heartwarming plot hidden behind all the glitz and glamour and dazzling array of costumes.

You’re sure to be clapping and tapping your way through to the many iconic songs from across the decades performed brilliantly by Donovan and the hugely talented cast.

So don’t be down in the dumps. Hurry up and get your tickets for this wildly fresh and funny musical extravaganza that will leave you feeling simply fabulous darling! It runs until Saturday. Visit
