$6 Adults / $4 Students with ID / $2 kids 12 and younger
Doors and Varsity Bar at 6
A new drag show at The Varsity will now feature comedy, dancing, singing, lip-synching and stories from the godmother of drag herself, emcee Blanche DuBois. Glamour Goddess Jodie Santana will add two comedy sets to her performance.
The first Varsity Drag Variety Show will be performed at the downtown performance venue at 7 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 7.
Other featured performers are Faim Lee Jewls, Holly Haliwell and Aida H. Headley. Ceduxion Carrington of Decatur is the evening’s special guest, and Lady Jasmine Michaels of Evansville is the evening’s greeter and hostess.
This is an all-ages show, and The Varsity welcomes young people; however, the show is a little on the risqué side, and those 17 and younger must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
Tickets are $6 for adults, $4 for students with ID and $2 for kids 12 and younger. They are available in advance at www.thevarsitycenter.eventbrite.com. Tickets are not available in advance at the venue but can be purchased on the night of the show, when doors and the Varsity Bar open at 6.
The Varsity Center is at 418 S. Illinois Ave. in Carbondale.
