Time Traveling Drag Queens in the 1940s.

History has a new set of visitors, and they're ready to shake things up! Imma, Coco, and Christie aren't your typical tourists. Armed with a mysterious device, these fabulous drag queens find themselves hurtling through time, leaving a trail of glitter and unforgettable encounters in their wake.

In the 1940s, they helped a USO troupe put on a show. In the 1980s, they helped a group of high school kids put on prom. Now they are headed to the 1960s. Buckle up and get ready for a history lesson unlike any other and to have some fun listening to some amazing music.

Imma, Coco, and Christie land in the swinging sixties, but their visit takes a shocking turn when they find themselves embroiled in a murder case. With pillbox hats and go-go boots kicking, these quick-witted queens must go undercover as stewardesses to crack the case before it's too late. But can they solve the mystery and find the killer before their next flight out?

The queens don't travel light. Prepare for a retro dream come true with showstopping cabaret performances featuring iconic 1960s hits. Rock out to classics by The Beatles and The Rolling Stones, groove to Motown legends like The Supremes and Aretha Franklin, and sashay to groovy tunes by Nancy Sinatra, The Monkees, and more.

Ticketed guests are also invited to attend the 1960s themed pre-show party with groovy cocktails, photo ops, and a few surprises. Doors open one hour prior to the curtain time of each performance.

The cast includes award-winning drag queens Treyla Trash and Sallie Just Sallie plus returning favorite Kevin Hincapie as the Time Traveling Drag Queens Imma Slappabitch, Coco Beach, and Christie Crème.

The production is directed by award-winning writer Rick Garman who has penned more than 40 movies for television networks like Hallmark Channel, Great American Family, and more.

This show contains adult language and themes and is intended for mature audiences.

The show dates are June 21 – June 23, 2024. Click HERE to purchase tickets for the different times.
