Smash hit musical Priscilla Queen of the Desert returns to Manchester next week.

Jason Donovan will reprise the role of Tick, the part he played when the show originally opened in the West End, and this production will also star Richard Grieve as Bernadette and Graham Weaver as Felicia.

The show will play the Palace Theatre, from Mon 17 - Sat 22 February, having opened the tour at the Opera House last year.

Based on the hit movie, the show is the adventure of three friends who hop aboard a bus searching for love and friendship and end up finding more than they could have dreamed of.

With dazzling costumes and a hit parade of dancefloor favourites it’s an easy crowd-pleaser.

It originally opened in Australia in 2006 where it ran for two years before opening in the West End for a run of a further two years.

The show recently played a hugely successful season on Broadway. Along the way, it has won numerous awards.
