The Queen’s Theatre Hornchurch is delighted that its regional professional premiere production of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert has received three nominations in the prestigious Off West End Theatre Awards.
Assessors from The Offies (Off West End Theatre Awards) have nominated Mark Inscoe for Male Performance, Josh Tye for Male Performance in a Supporting Role and a joint Musical Director nomination for Adam Gerber and Tom Self (Adam Gerber is the Musical Director for the overall show and Tom Self is the Performance Musical Director).
The OffWestEnd.com website, which champions London’s independent theatres, launched the annual awards – also known as The Offies – in 2010 to celebrate excellence in productions outside the West End. The Queen’s Theatre is part of more than 80 participating venues across the capital and a final shortlist will come out early next year.
This four-star actor-musician version of the glamorous feel-good musical written by Stephan Elliot and Allan Scott is directed by the Queen’s Theatre’s Artistic Director Douglas Rintoul. This ‘fun and flirtatious’ (LondonTheatre1) production has left audiences laughing and strutting home in high spirits, with it being dubbed as ‘a show to see’ by theatre blogger There Ought To be Clowns.
Priscilla, Queen of the Desert runs at the Queen’s Theatre Hornchurch until Saturday 26 May. For more information about the show call the Box Office on 01708 443333 or visit queens-theatre.co.uk.
