DRAG SHOW GATHERING/MEETING (FAIRBANKS/UAF)|
Tomorrow (Monday, Sept 11, 2006) at 8pm we're meeting on the bottom floor of the Wood Center on campus, over where the comfy seats are where people pretend to study. Please please PLEASE try to make it if you're interested in being in/helping with the drag show! If you can't make it but want to be involved email me so I know.
so here's the details:
Myself, Joel, Hannah C, and Leah have all been toying with the idear of a drag show for a very very long time. It is time to make such a dream a reality!
We're aiming for Saturday, Oct. 7th (the next full moon), though we're still venue hunting. The goal is to provide an all ages venue the week prior to the Alaska Pride Conference in Anchorage.
This drag show, howevers, is not your ordinary drag show (oh no its not!), no no no, its a drag VARIETY show! Meaning: in addition to lip synching, choreographed, drag songs, but we also want skits, fashion shows, jugglers, fire dancers, drummers, musicians, burlesque dancers, gymnasts, people with odd and disturbing talents, joke tellers, contortionists, ventriloquists, and anything else that suits your fancy! We want as much variety as can be offered. We want music from all styles, idears from all brains! Stage-shy? We'll need folks with a knack for make-up art, lighting, set design, controlling-get-your-shit-together-organizers, artists, costumers, etc! We're also looking for djs for a before and after party type dancefest.
ALSO- you may have noticed that SDA is performing their shorts that night. Twoo, however, we're aiming for the drag show to start at TEN pm so that folks can go TO the shorts and THEN to the drag show!
SO: what I need from everyone! Show up or email me if you're interested. We're operating on a short timeline here, but I think we can pull it off, and I think we can rock it.
And SPREAD THE WORD like you heard that your boss was doin' your coworker: wildfire folks, start talkin' around this town about it! get the word out! I know a number of people who I'd like to get ahold of who I don't have email addresses for so please spread the word!
With that, show up. Monday, woodcenter. 8pm. bring your badass selves and some ideas!
love to you all.
