The RuPaul Drag Race season 6 contestant will be headlining the ‘BenDeLaCreme and the Vivacious Variety Show’ alongside Mod Carousel, a Seattle-based multidisciplinary burlesque collective bringing show-stopping performances by artists like Paris Original, Trojan Original, the Luminous Pariah, and Moscato Extatique.

Victoria patrons may recognize some familiar faces on stage as these visiting guests are joined by local stars, Eddi Licious, Vivian Vanderpuss, Champagne Sparkles, Lola Maneata, Cherry Cheeks, Fruit Bat, Sinful DeVille, and Gala Vega.

According to production company Phamus Productions, this show celebrates indigenous artists, performers of colour, artists of all sizes and body types, LGBTQ+ artists, and performers of many different backgrounds.

This will be the first of two major drag shows in Victoria next month, as RuPaul stars Brooke Lynn Hytes and Monet X Change take the Royal Theatre stage just two weeks later.

Tickets for the ‘BenDeLaCreme and the Vivacious Variety Show’ range from $70 to $160 – grab them while they last!
