Drive-In Drag Shows Canada – debuts July 10 in Midland, Ontario
Midland is the ﬁrst Canadian stop of an exciting new show, Drive In Drag Show Canada, which will take place at Drive-In Theatres across Canada this summer.
Drag is all the rage in Canada right now (with CTV’s Canada’s Drag Race just premiering), one of Canada’s most renowned drag queens, Miss Conception is taking her show on the road and coming to a drive in near you. Fresh off a pride performance featuring Canadian comedians Colin Mochrie and Andrea Martin, Miss Conception is bringing her sassy, feel good show to your backyard and using her platform to give back, with a portion of the funds raised going to local hospitals.
Splash Events Inc. and Dragging Across Canada presents Drive In Drag Show Canada, a variety show featuring 3 of Canada’s top drag queen performers, with the ﬁrst performance taking place on Friday July 10th in Midland, Ontario on the beautiful shores of Georgian Bay.
“This is a ﬁrst-of-its-kind show in Canada,” says Jaime Crouch, owner of Splash Events Inc. and the performer behind the Jodie James persona. “Drive in Drag shows have only just started in Vegas since the current period of social distancing. It’s a way for us to all get out, enjoy a fantastic, entertaining show, and still remain safe.”
Drive In Drag Show Canada stars Miss Conception, one of Canada’s busiest drag performers with special guests Sofonda and Lady Face. The evening’s host is Midland’s own Jodie James, star of the popular Big Wigs show held annually at the Midland Cultural Centre. Read more here.
Fans will also be treated to a special video presentation by Brooke Lynn Hytes, the drag queen and ballet dancer known internationally for her appearance on the eleventh season of RuPaul’s Drag Race and a judge on Canada’s Drag Race Brooke Lynn Hytes Queen of the North.
