People of Blackpool are no strangers to drag culture but the recent popularity of ballroom culture and shows including Pose and Re Paul’s Drag Race have launched it into the mainstream.
In January Blackpool will be blessed with a new drag show, not in Funny Girls but sashaying onto hallowed stage of the Grand Theatre – with a divine twist.
Death Drop: Back In The Habit is described as a delightfully daft drag murder mystery – Dragatha Christie, if you will. It arrives on the back of three sold-out West End runs.
Rob Evans’s script features a gaggle of glamorous nuns trapped in their convent with a serial slayer slashing their way through the sisters. Clues are cleverly unearthed by Sis Marple as this all-drag killer comedy comes to its darkly funny conclusion.
Creative director and producer Christopher Clegg says: “We cannot wait to sashay onto the road again with the next chapter in the ridiculous Death Drop saga, this time with a flock of fabulous drag nuns! Audiences are in for a real treat as this hilarious comedy puts a whole new spin on murder, religion and of course drag. You will NOT want to miss this outrageous show.”
And if the show inspired you to werk the stage yourself, House of Wingz offer Vogue dance classes. Check them out at skoolofstreet.com.
Death Drop: Back in the Habit is at Blackpool Grand Theatre from Tuesday 3 to Saturday 7 January 2023 at 8pm. Friday & Saturday at 5.30pm and 8.30pm. Tickets from £15.50 with concessions available.
