Posted By on Thu, Jan 30, 2014 at 2:46 PM

Friends of Georges and the production team behind George's Truck Stop and Drag Bar will present a new drag-themed musical, The Dragnificent Variety Hour, this weekend at Evergreen Theatre.

The original sketch comedy production will feature local drag queens and plenty of over-the-top production numbers.

"We all love shows like The Carol Burnett Show and Sonny and Cher,” says Friends of George’s Tracy Love. “Those shows were so much fun because of all the amazing guest stars and production numbers. We really wanted to create something in that genre.”

Sketches will include "The Tea (a parody of the The View) and "Drag in a Bag" (a parody of the Home Shopping Channel) among others.

The show will go on at 8 p.m. on Friday, January 31st and Saturday, February 1st. Tickets are $20 and are on sale at friendsofgeorges.org and at the box office while they last.
