The Runway Production Team would like to thank all those who attended the workshops and principal auditions for Priscilla Queen of the Desert. The standard was extremely high, and the Panel took some time to consider the Principal and Dancer / Ensemble cast. Regrettably we could not take everyone who auditioned, and we offer commiserations to those who have been unsuccessful on this occasion.

Following the Principal auditions, the Panel was unable to cast the role of Adam/ Felicia and after further auditions were held, we asked our Choreographer, Greg Robertson to audition for this role. Following his audition today, the Panel are delighted to announce that he will play the role of Adam/ Felicia. In view of his double commitment, the Panel have agreed that two Dance Assistants will be appointed to assist Greg at rehearsals.
Congratulations to all who were successful, and the Production Team look forward to working with you on this fabulous show!
