We Are looking For Benji!
The exciting hit musical Priscilla Queen of the Desert is coming to South Africa and we are looking for an 8-11 year old boy to play the role of 8 year old Benji. He is the cute son of Tick and his estranged wife, Marion (a hotel entertainment manager). Marion has brought Benji up to be sweet and open-minded. Tick has not seen him for many years. Requires a good actor who sings. We are looking for three actors to alternate this role.
Priscilla, Queen of the Desert is a musical with a book by Australian film director-writer Stephan Elliott and Allan Scott, using well-known pop songs as its score. Adapted from Elliott's 1994 film The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert, the musical tells the story of two drag queens and a transgender woman, who contract to perform a drag show at a resort in Alice Springs, a resort town in the remote Australian desert. As they head west from Sydney aboard their lavender bus, Priscilla, the three friends come to the forefront of a comedy of errors, encountering a number of strange characters, as well as incidents of homophobia, while widening comfort zones and finding new horizons.
