Drag-Opticon is an inclusive monthly live drag show taking place on the first Friday of the month. Featuring the iconic international performing power couple, the award winning Alana Duvey and apocalypse bringer Dharma Geddon plus a gaggle of their amazingly talented friends from across the drag and performance spectrum.
With a different lineup of local entertainers every month, this sell-out show is a night not to be missed! Expect lip sync extravaganzas, gag-worthy live singing and a whole host of other tricks of the trade to slay you and leave you gagging for more!
This is a seated event and a safe, welcoming space for all in a stunning theatre style setting. The venue has a licensed bar and a warm, relaxed atmosphere however, it can get very chilly on cold nights so please wrap up warm. There’s also a raffle!
