the priscilla broucher is out its 8 but it is both a broucher and a program and if you are thinking about getting it signed you will need either sharpie or a gold or silver pen !

and from what im gather from the west end understudies site they all perform mats unless away due to illness.

hope that helps

8 for a brochure!!!! WHAT! That is silly. If they had it from the start it would have been fine, but i've already got a basic programme, so another 8 for some pictures is abit too much.

10 for a boa and 15 for a shopping bag!
Not that i bought any of course!

8 for a brocure is the norm.

The matinees are all complete casts.
The company have had full rehearsals with all understudies but you'll be a very lucky person if you ever see Mr Sheldons understudy!
Getting Mr Sheldon off that stage ain't gonna be easy!

Programmes are usually 3-4 and brochures are often 6-7, so 8 for a combo actually isn't bad at all. Though it's kind of annoying because I tend to buy a programme on my way in and then a brochure afterwards if I liked the show...

BTW, I'm finally looking at getting tickets for 'Priscilla'. I generally prefer to be in the stalls fairly close to the stage, but I've heard that this show is better from the dress circle? Which one is better generally?

Stay in the stalls if thats your preference BUT don't sit in the the first 5 or so rows- you wont see anything below the knee.
I sat in row D stalls for opening night and as fab as it was to be so close, the stage is too high.
In previews I sat row D dress circle and they were simply perfect!

Enjoy, you simply can not not!

The producers of PRISCILLA "recommend" that cast members take a certain number of performances off within their contract so I understand that Oliver Thornton (ADAM) is away July 27-August 1,
Tony Sheldon (BERNADETTE) is away August 3-8 and Jason Donovan (TICK) is away for the last two weeks of August.

I feel bad for anyone who's booked to see Priscilla for the week Tony Sheldon might be 'made' to take off. A performance without him as Bernadette is about as rare as a solar eclipse.

I feel bad for feeling bad though, because he undoubtedly deserves the time off and his understudy probably deserves a shot at least one performance in front of an audience. I saw Craig Ryder go on as Tick the other week and am seeing him again when JD is off in August - he was excellent, coped really well with the role and with several 'wardrobe malfunctions' throughout the show. re: Pricilla questions ....If I may ?

On the issue of stalls vs dress circle, I always prefer front stalls because I feel more involved in the atmosphere than watching from a distance, but that's just me. At the Palace you will miss a few visual gags if you're at the very front but you might get a ping-pong ball as a souvenir!

Seen some shows in my time....

He's only ever had to miss one single performance so far.
