Parents/guardians will be required to get children to and from the audition, rehearsal and performance venues, but chaperones will be provided for the actual rehearsals and performances. Based on the Oscar winning movie The Adventures of Priscilla Queen of the Desert, the musical tells the funny and moving story of three drag performers who set off from Sydney across the Australian desert in a battered old tour bus, christened Priscilla. The show contains over 20 classic disco hits such as I Will Survive and I Love The Nightlife.
