Showtime Management, SA Producer of the international hit musical, Priscilla Queen of the Desert, has announced the extension of the Johannesburg season at The Teatro, Montecasino.

The show opened on 29 April and although originally scheduled to close on 28 May, popular demand has led to the show being extended until 18 June 2017. Since Priscilla Queen of the Desert opened in Cape Town over a week ago, to critical acclaim, the show has received nightly standing ovations and rave reviews. The rapturous applause at every performance was loud enough to almost literally lift the roof of Artscape’s Opera House. Accolades from media and audiences alike are synonymous in their delight at seeing the multi-talented 28-member all-South African Priscilla cast on the stage. Priscilla Queen of the Desert is a heart-warming and uplifting tale of three drag artist friends who hop aboard a battered old bus aka ‘Priscilla’ and go off on the adventure of a lifetime through the Australian Outback, to perform in Alice Springs. On the way, they find friendship, love and far more than they ever dreamed of. With a dazzling array of over 500 award-winning costumes, 200 extraordinary head-dresses and a hit parade of dancefloor favourites including ‘I Will Survive’, ‘Hot Stuff’, ‘Finally’, ‘Boogie Wonderland’, ‘Go West’, ‘Girls Just Wanna Have Fun’, and ‘I Love The Nightlife’, this wildly fresh and funny musical is a journey to the heart of FABULOUS!

Hop on board the bus for the most entertaining journey ever. It’s the most fun you’ll have in the theatre.
