• Varsity Drag: “A Night of Music from the Movies”

    October 24, 2019
    The there for the next Varsity Drag Variety Show is " A Night of Music from the Movies." The new, expanded show features comedy, dancing, singing, lip-synching and stories from the godmother of drag herself, emcee Blanche DuBois.

    The high-energy show will be performed at the downtown performance venue at 7 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 9. Performances will showcase music featured in movies from all decades.

    Joining Blanche on stage will be Holly Haliwell, Aida H. Headley, Faim Lee Jewls, Kailey Kreme and Lady Jasmine Michaels, who also 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.

    The Varsity Drag Variety Show begins at 7 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 9. Tickets are $6 for adults, $4 for students with ID, and $2 for kids 10 and younger. They are available in advance at www.thevarsitycenter.eventbrite.com. Tickets are not available in advance at the venue but will be available on the night of the show, when doors and the Varsity Bar open at 6. Come early and enjoy a special cocktail at the bar and the company of Lady Jasmine.

    The Varsity is downtown Carbondale at 418 S. Illinois Ave. To keep up with all the events on the schedule, go to www.facebook.com/varsitycenter.
