The Project’s Steve Price has announced he will make his theatrical debut in a special one night only tailor-made guest role in Priscilla Queen of the Desert at Melbourne’s Regent Theatre on Friday 6 April 2018.
“I’ve always wanted to get up on stage and give it a go and the people of Priscilla are going to give me that chance,” said Price. “I guess now that I’ve been to the jungle, it’s time I went bush.”
Price will be strapping into a pair of Blundstones, donning flannelette and frocking up as part of Priscilla’s flora and fauna. To prepare for the role, he will have to undergo a theatre safety induction, costume fitting and several rehearsals with the cast ahead of his theatre debut.
Price originally had his eye on the role of Bob – played by Aussie actor Robert Grubb, “I really wanted to be a part of the show but I couldn’t commit to 8 shows a week because of my Project and Macquarie Radio schedule,” he said. “Probably for the best really as the cast of this show are incredible!”
Priscilla Queen of the Desert opened at Melbourne’s Regent Theatre to rave reviews 0n 30 January 2018. Australia’s most successful home grown musical has travelled to 135 cities in 29 countries around the world since it premiered in Australia a decade ago.
