Strictly Come Dancing winner Joe McFadden will star in a new production of the much-loved musical Priscilla, Queen of the Desert.

And the good news is, it's coming to Malvern Theatres in October.

A spokesman said: "The show marks Jason Donovan’s first time as a producer, having performed in the cast of the original West End production and two subsequent UK tours.

"The iconic hit musical has more glitter than ever before, featuring a dazzling array of stunning costumes, fabulous feathers and a non-stop parade of dance-floor classics including It’s Raining Men, I Will Survive, I Love The Nightlife, Finally and many more."

Based on the Oscar-winning film, this is the adventure of three friends who hop aboard a battered old bus bound for Alice Springs to put on the show of a lifetime.

Their epic journey is "a heart-warming story of self-discovery, sassiness and acceptance".

Joe McFadden’s television credits include: Holby City (BBC); Casualty (BBC); Heartbeat (ITV/YTV); Cranford (BBC); Sparkhouse (BBC/Red Productions); A Mortal God (BBC); Reverse Psychology (BBC); Judge John Deed (BBC/One Eyed Dog); The Glass (ITV1/Granada); The Law (ITV1/Pearson); Sex, Chips & Rock n' Roll (BBC); The Crow Road (BBC/Union Pictures). Film includes: Small Faces; Dad Savage; Zig Zag Love; The Trouble with Men and Women; Bumping The Odds.

Joe said: “I’m over the moon to be taking on this new and exciting challenge in a musical that I have been a massive fan of for such a long time. I’m looking forward to working with this wonderful production team, including Jason whose guidance I feel especially lucky to have given his previous experience with the production. I can’t wait to take the Priscilla bus on the road and have a bonzer time making the role my own!”

Priscilla, Queen of the Desert will be on stage at Malvern Theatres from Monday October 14 to Saturday October 19. Tickets are on sale at the Box Office 01684 892277 and online at
