Jason Donovan stars in Priscilla Queen of the Desert
Jason Donovan is to headline on stage in Birmingham in one of his most colourful, flamboyant roles.

He stars as Tick in Priscilla, Queen of the Desert, a role he first played when the show opened in the West End. The Priscilla, Queen of the Desert tour arrives at Birmingham's New Alexandra Theatre on March 18 and remains until March 30.

This heart-warming tale is an uplifting story of three friends, who head off on a battered old bus in search of love and friendship and end up finding more than they could have ever dreamed of.

With a dazzling array of outrageous costumes and a hit parade of dancefloor favourites including 'It's Raining Men', 'Say a Little Prayer', 'Go West', 'Hot Stuff' and 'Always on My Mind', it is humorous, loud and fun with a capital F.

Donovan, who shot to fame as Scott Robinson in Neighbours as a teenager before a pop career, found success in a series of musical parts on stage before taking a turn in reality shows including I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out of Here! and Strictly Come Dancing.

He is joined on stage by another well-known Australian soap star, Richard Grieve - Sam Kratz in Neighbours, Dr Lachlan Frazer in Home and Away and Jonny Foster in Emmerdale. Grieve plays Bernadette in the Priscilla show.
