Priscilla, Queen of the Desert, will drive into the city centre's theatre from Monday, August 30, to Saturday, September 4.

Based on the Oscar-winning movie, Priscilla is the heart-warming adventure of three friends who hop aboard a battered old bus bound for the Outback to put on a show of a lifetime. Two worlds collide on the journey of self-discovery and friendship.

With more glitz and glamour than ever before, the show-stopping musical features dance routines, an array of eye-popping costumes, and a sing-a-long soundtrack full of your favourite dance-floor classics – including, Hot Stuff, It’s Raining Men, I Will Survive, Girls Just Wanna Have Fun and Finally.

Seating for this production will be based on a socially-distanced model at this moment in time, subject to change depending on Government guidance closer to the performance date.

Meanwhile, one of the country’s most beloved musicals, Blood Brothers, will also return to Birmingham from Tuesday, November 2, to Saturday, November 13.

Written by Willy Russell, Blood Brothers tells the moving tale of twins who, separated at birth, grow up on opposite sides of the tracks, only to meet again with fateful consequences.

Looking ahead to 2022, Chichester Festival Theatre’s Olivier Award-nominated production of Singin’ in the Rain will bring 14,000 litres of water to the stage at every performance from Monday, June 6, to Saturday, June 11, 2022

More productions and events for 2021 are expected be announced by Birmingham Hippodrome soon.

Tickets for Priscilla, Queen of the Desert, Blood Brothers and Singin’ in the Rain are now on sale to Birmingham Hippodrome Friends and Patron scheme members. Tickets go on general sale 11am on Tuesday at
