Lake Worth, Florida (PRWEB) March 15, 2009
The Lake Worth Playhouse announces Send in the Queens, the second annual drag show fundraising concert to benefit the Playhouse. Two performances of this high-end, high-energy drag concert will take place during Pride Week on Friday, March 27 and Saturday, March 28 at 8:00 p.m.
Send in the Queens features a cast of dazzling drag performers who will channel some of the hottest singers of stage and screen, honoring legendary performers ranging from Connie Francis to Jennifer Lopez, and presenting song-and-dance numbers from such blockbuster musicals as Grease, Chicago, The Great American Trailer Park Musical and Mamma Mia.
After last year's sell-out performance, the Playhouse has added an additional show to this year's Send in the Queens schedule. All proceeds from both the March 27 and March 28 shows will be used to support Playhouse operations.
