Republic of Telly star Jennifer Maguire is set to star in Priscilla Queen Of The Desert alongside Jason Donovan in the Bord Gáis Energy Theatre.

Speaking about making her stage debut as Marion, Jennifer said:  “I grew up in the acting world as my Mam has her own theatre company so it’s always been a dream to end up on stage. A lot of people don’t realise that I’m acting in Republic of Telly and think I’m just a wagon so it’s just an honour to have been selected for this role, although I’m absolutely terrified obviously!

"I’m a massive fan of Jason Donovan as is any child of the ‘80’s, I watched Neighbours religiously and dreamed of being Charlene to his Scott, so I just can’t believe that I’m going to play his wife all these years later. Priscilla Queen of the Desert is one of my all-time favourite shows and I just can’t wait to get started”

Priscilla Queen Of The Desert runs from October 15 - 26.
