Olivier Award nominee Tony Sheldon will play Bernadette; Hair Tony Award nominee Will Swenson is Tick/Mitzi; and La Cage aux Folles actor Nick Adams will play Adam/Felicia; these are the three friends who set out “on a heart-warming, uplifting adventure. [They] 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.”
