From the Facebook event page:

DRAG 101 starring Delighted Tobehere
A hilarious, live singing A to Z course in drag! (Yes, the T stands for Tucking.)

A wise man once said, “Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain!” Well, we’ll just ignore him for this show!

In DRAG 101, Delighted Tobehere will leave nothing to the imagination as she reveals ALL of drag’s best kept secrets! She’ll pull from her over 17 years of experience to give you a behind the scenes look at the world of drag! Personal stories, gossip, pro tips, how-to’s, audience participation, side splitting comedy, and yes, 100% live singing entertainment! The judges loved her on America’s Got Talent, Pam Ann thinks she’s hilarious, and you’re sure to agree!

Find out what it takes to be a QUEEN! This is a hilarious, live-singing, full transformation drag show! Everything that happens in a drag dressing room happens on stage right before your very eyes. Everything. Yes… even THAT!

Delighted Tobehere’s entertainment career began February 2001 where she performed alongside The Armorettes – “The Infamous Camp Drag Queens of the South” – in the legendary nightclub Backstreet Atlanta. Since her momentous first performance, she has been a tour de force in the drag scene both on-stage and behind the scenes.

A self described “Queen of all Trades,” Delighted combines celebrity illusion, vocal impressions, live vocals, lip sync, comedy, intelligence, and quick wit to wow audiences from corporate functions to pride festivals.
Delighted’s feature celebrity illusion is none other than Adele. London’s QX Magazine says that her impersonation is “something that has to be seen to be believed!” and Boy George said that it was “perfection!”

You can follow Delighted Tobehere on social media @QueenDelighted (IG, Twitter, YouTube, Venmo) and Like her on Facebook! You’ll be DELIGHTED you did!

The doors open at 7 p.m. and the show begins at 7:30 at the Beat Kitchen at 2100 W Belmont Ave in Chicago.
