WINCHESTER Musicals and Opera Society is taking audiences on a wild ride with Priscilla Queen of the Desert in May. 

The production promises audiences a vibrant, high-energy spectacle filled with dazzling performances and music. 

The show will run from May 22 to 25 at the Theatre Royal. 

Based on the smash-hit movie, which celebrates its 30th anniversary this year, the show follows the journey of three drag queens as they travel across the Australian outback in a battered old bus named Priscilla. 

Filled with humour, heart and a soundtrack of dance-floor classics, the musical celebrates friendship, acceptance, and the courage to be true to yourself.

The Queens and Divas came to Winchester Student Union to strut their stuff ahead of the run. 

David Tatnall will be playing Tick, a drag performer with a secret, who decides to travel across the outback for a gig he cannot refuse. Daniel Williams plays Adam, a young drag queen at the beginning of their career and Iain Steel plays the glamorous Bernadette, a seasoned professional who comes along with Tick and Adam to forget her past. 

The Divas are played by Funke Akiboye, Olivia Conroy and newcomer to the society Jade Nicholas.

The Divas are the Greek-style chorus that accompany the Queens on their adventure and supply the soundtrack from Sydney to Alice Springs. 

"Our production of Priscilla Queen of the Desert is a testament to the talent and dedication of our performers, crew, and creative team," said Shannon Cronin who is a first time director for WMOS. She is joined by Charlotte Upfold as musical director and Jessica Eades as choreographer.

The show features songs such as It's Raining Men, I Will Survive and Venus. Tickets for Priscilla Queen of the Desert are now on sale and can be bought online or at the Theatre Royal box office.
