Donovan (Joseph, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, The Sound of Music), who starred in the original London production of Priscilla, will return to the role of Tick, with Grieve (The Boy from Oz, Neighbours) as Bernadette and Weaver (Chicago, Assassins) as Felicia. Both Grieve and Weaver also played their respective roles during the West End run of the jukebox musical.
Current tour stops also include the Oxford New Theatre, the Edinburgh Playhouse, the New Wimbledon Theatre and more.
The show also features musical supervision and arrangements by Stephen "Spud" Murphy, set design by Brian Thomson, costumes by Tim Chappel and Lizzy Gardiner, lighting design by Nick Schlieper, sound design by Jonathan Deans and Peter Fitzgerald, and make-up design by Cassie Hanlon.
The Broadway production starred Tony Award nominee Will Swenson, Tony Award nominee Tony Sheldon and Nick Adams as "the trio of friends on a heart-warming, uplifting road trip of a lifetime who hop aboard a battered old bus searching for love and friendship in the middle of the Australian outback and end up finding more than they could ever have dreamed," according to producers.
