Drag is back for the holidays at Olney Theatre Center with Drag the Halls, two nights of holiday-themed performances on December 8 and 9 in the 1938 Original Theatre. Created by and starring Echinacea Monroe (Solomon Parker III, Lola in Olney Theatre’s Kinky Boots), Evon Dior Michelle (Baltimore’s Drag Performer of the Year, aka Devon Vaow), and Tiarra Missou (David Singleton, also of Kinky Boots), the show promises to be a holiday celebration in song, dance, and heels. Both Friday and Saturday nights begin at 8:00 pm, and tickets ($36) may be purchased at olneytheatre.org/drag or by calling the box office at 301-924-3400.
Kevin McAllister, the director of Curated Programs at Olney Theatre said, “When I think of unapologetic joy, love and light, humor, family, gifts and just plain fun I think of the holidays. I also this of Evon, Tiarra, and Echinacea. These three performers have been gifts to my life over the years and even bigger gifts to Olney Theatre Center. For the holidays, this year we thought we’d share their gifts with you one more time and let them put together a full show of their own, with live singing, a band, amazing lip synching, and mind-blowing costumes. You won’t want to miss this. Yes, there will even be a few surprise special guests as well. Don’t miss these hilarious entertainers as they Drag The Halls.”
This will be the final public event in the 1938 Original Theatre before it goes offline for renovations in the New Year. More information about those renovations is available at stagingthefuture.org
