Drag King Comedy Workshop and Competition Show

Dates: May 23 – 24, 2024Time: 11am – 4pmShow: Evening of May 24 – Time and location TBDLocation: Old Trout Puppet Workshop (3640 15A St. SE)

A workshop and competition show in the fierce vulnerability of masculine drag
exclusively for women and afab performers
with Deanna Fleysher (aka Vincent Prix).

Makeup doesn’t make you a man. Stupidity does.

In this two-day intensive and show, we will find, hone and fully work out the stupid man inside of you, so that you can slay the competition at being a hilarious, unique and very very manly drag king. Through exercises based in clown, grotesque and physical theatre, we will hone your man body, clarify your physical and vocal expression, and get you pumped full of generally funny man juice.

In this 2-day intensive workshop and competition show experience, expect the following:

  • Discovery and exploration of your own Drag King character, suitable for drag shows and competition, as well as just taking him out and parading him around town.
  • Personalized feedback (and plenty of it).
  • More understanding of what stage magnetism and fierce vulnerability mean for you, and how to really harness your performative power, both in and out of drag.
  • Lip syncing and interpretive dance.
  • A unique performance experience with your drag king brothers, complete with celebrity judges and a phallic trophy.
  • More wildness, more bravery, more vulnerability.
  • Laughing a lot.
  • Participation in the workshop entitles you to compete in a Drag King Show competition. The winner will earn the Title of Mr. Big Silver-Lick and the envy of all of their less-macho friends.
