Flyin' Solo - A Hilariously Heartwarming Dragsical at Grafton Street Dinner Theatre (1741 Grafton Street)
This unique and empowering one-woman show brings together classic drag performance, with contemporary musical theatre! It follows the story of a wide-eyed young woman looking for love and her place in the world, ultimately finding all the purpose and validation she needs within herself. Flyin' Solo is set to Broadway hits from shows like Legally Blonde, Shrek, and The Addams Family, and features interactive comedy, live vocals, and colourful costumes! It won the Fan Favourite award at the Fundy Fringe Festival in 2021. Audiences have called it an "absolutely phenomenal show" and said, "I had goosebumps at the first song!"
There is a bar on-site, but this event is all-ages. Seating is by general admission, on a first-come, first-serve basis. Tickets are $25 available online.
