Year of the Queen: The Making of the Hit Show Priscilla Queen of the Desert

Jeremy Stanford

After an eight year absence from big musical theatre, Jeremy Stanford suddenly finds himself cast in a leading role of one of the most expensive and eagerly anticipated Australian musicals ever; Priscilla Queen of the Desert - The Musical. Involved from the outset, starting with the workshop of the first script, he navigates the auditions, the nerve-wracking rehearsals and finally, the incredibly fraught lead up to the world premier of this hit show. Its a wild bus trip through a landscape of big personalities, high stakes, tantrums and creative blocks. Along the way he limbers up his rusty musical theatre muscle and investigates the outrageous world of drag as he attempts to recreate the role of Tick, the character made famous in the film by Hugo Weaving. …reveals a taste for juicy gossip equal to that of any queen… Steve Dow, Sun-Herald …not only interesting to theatre fans but also anyone who has seen the movie or ever thought about putting on a pair of heels for the heck of it.
