Speaking about the theatre’s decision to produce the musical, Douglas Rintoul, artistic director at the Queen’s Theatre said: “Priscilla, Queen of the Desert is absolutely ripe for a new more intimate, stripped back, actor-musician midscale production.”

The Queen’s Theatre in Billet Lane is part of more than 80 participating venues across London and a final shortlist will come out early next year.

Priscilla, Queen of the Desert runs until Saturday, May 26, with a special dementia friendly performance on Thursday, May 24.
