The Wight Strollers heading across the Australian Outback on a journey to the heart of fabulousness…and they’re inviting you all along for the ride from 6-8th July at Medina Theatre in Newport.

Priscilla: Queen of the Desert – The Musical is the heart-warming, uplifting adventure of 3 friends – Tick, Bernadette and Adam, an unlikely trio who team up to cross the desert on from Sydney to Alice Springs to deliver the show of a lifetime. They hop aboard a battered old bus – nicknamed Priscilla – and along the way they discover the power of dreams, love and friendship.

Vibrant, dynamic and exciting, this is a show packed with iconic musical numbers, including ‘It’s Raining Men’; ‘I Will Survive’; ‘Hot Stuff’; ‘Boogie Wonderland’; ‘Go West’; ‘True Colours’; ‘Girls Just Wanna Have Fun’; ‘Colour My World’ and ‘I Love The Nightlife’.
