This live reality competition and fundraiser will squeeze an entire season of Drag Race into less than two hours with RuPaul-inspired challenges such as Snatch Game (contestants channel celebrities in a mock game show); The Library (contestants take turns reading and roasting one another); and the ever-popular finale - Lipsync for Your Life.

Hosting the benefit is local legend Patti O’Furniture while the contestants will be judged by a Who’s Who in the Upstate LGBTQ+ community including drag entertainer Delighted TobehereIvy Hill (Gender Benders), John Fagan (The Warehouse Theatre’s Upstate Shakespeare Festival), Vaughn Newman (Vaughn Newman Dance). Prizes will be awarded for each challenge with the winner taking home the $500 GRAND PRIZE and more opportunities for public and online appearances on behalf of Proud Mary Theatre Company.
