School is in session!
Sharpen your pencils, brandish your book bags, and get ready for a rigorous academic roster - it’s the first-ever Drag Class! An intensive ten-week drag show & competition, aiming to ready new performers for the modern industry. Each week the ‘classmates’ will be battling it out with a series of assignments centred around a different logistical aspect of the drag art form - from costume, to lipsync, wigs, makeup, comedy and drag history. By our Drag Class Grand Finale in week ten, the graduates will have clocked the stage time, finessed the skills, and created the costumes and acts to be ready to be booked in any context. So, who will be the teacher’s pet? Who will be our class clown? And who will be our Grand Drag Class Dux? Head on down to Ivy Bar on Tuesdays at 7.30 pm to find out!
Our Class of 2020 is!

Concept credit for Drag Class goes completely to the amazing Sabel Scities of Austin TX, our thanks go out to her for her generosity in allowing us to replicate the program here.
Please note! Seating is not allocated unless a VIP ticket is purchased so make sure to arrive early to nab a good vantage point. Doors open one hour before showtime, latecomers may not be admitted, and door sales are cash only. The event space is located downstairs but please get in touch before the gig if you have any accessibility concerns so we can best help you out.
