Tony Sheldon created the role of "Bernadette" in the first workshop of PRISCILLA seven years ago, and has starred in over 1,600 performances of the musical around the world in Australia, New Zealand, London, Toronto, and made his Broadway debut in the role last season.

He was nominated for every major award he was eligible for including 2011 Drama Desk, Outer Critics Circle, Drama League awards and the Tony Award for Best Leading Actor in a Musical and was also awarded the Theatre World Award for Outstanding Broadway debut.

PRISCILLA stars 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.

PRISCILLA was awarded a 2011 Tony Award for Best Costume Design for Academy Award winners Tim Chappel and Lizzy Gardiner's designs. The new hit musical was also honored with three Best Musical award nominations from the Drama Desk, Drama League and Outer Critics Circle Award organizations.
