Priscilla Queen of the Desert (Hong Kong Season) - Benji Auditions

25/06/2017

PRISCILLA QUEEN OF THE DESERT, THE MUSICAL is a feel-good favourite from the West End and Broadway. Acclaimed around the world, and proudly flaunting prestigious Olivier and Tony Awards, PRISCILLA now rolls in to Hong Kong this September!
 
Presented by Lunchbox Theatrical Productions with auditions held in conjunction with HKYAF, we are now seeking four talented young performers to play the role of Benji. This is a fantastic once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to perform alongside musical theatre professionals!
 

Based on the Oscar-winning hit movie, PRISCILLA is the heart-warming, uplifting story of three friends who hop aboard a battered old bus named Priscilla, searching for love and friendship. They end up on a journey of self-discovery and the road trip of a lifetime across outback Australia.
 
This wildly fresh and funny musical features a hit parade of dance-floor favourites including: Girls Just Wanna Have Fun, Don’t Leave Me This Way, I Will Survive, I Love The Nightlife, Go West, Hot Stuff, and Shake Your Groove Thing. With a dazzling array of over 500 outrageous costumes, 200 extraordinary headdresses, 23 tonnes of scenery, and a 10 metre long customized bus weighting six tonnes as its sparkling centerpiece, PRISCILLA is a must-see spectacular!
 
To audition, please first read through the “Audition Briefing” document thoroughly.
