Based on the Oscar winning film, 'Priscilla Queen of the Desert The Musical' tells the story of three drag performers who set off from Sydney across the Australian desert in a battered old bus, christened Priscilla. The show contains over 20 classic disco hits such as I Will Survive and I Love The Nightlife.

Norwegian Cruise Line is committed to raising the bar on what can be expected from at-sea entertainment. We can and do deliver A-list productions with amazing directors like Helpmann Award winning Dean Bryant, with competitive salaries and professional working environments (and of course, the bonus of cruising to some of the world’s most beautiful destinations!). It’s an exciting time to become a part of the Norwegian family. Norwegian Epic is the ship of choice for those sailing on a Mediterranean cruise or one of our many Caribbean cruises. Norwegian Epic is offering world-class performers and a new wave of accommodations – from Studios, designed and priced for the solo traveler, to the private Haven.

Norwegian Epic has taken having fun to the next level with a huge, multi-slide Aqua Park, a two-story Sports Complex with rock climbing and basketball court, and a fitness centre complete with boxercise ring. Add more than 20 different dining options and you’ll understand why this is Freestyle Cruising on a truly grand scale.

Please note the music in 'Priscilla' is written in the contemporary style of the 70’s and 80’s. Vocal gymnastics, embellishments and improvisation are not a requirement. The Musical Director wants to hear a clear contemporary tone and a natural uncontrived pop/contemporary vocal approach to the songs.
