The annual hit, ABFAB DRAG, returns with a bang for ONE show only on the 9th August 2022. With fine feathers preened, false eyelashes fluttering and sequins glittering, the fiercely feminine/masculine are gathering to celebrate the world of “lip sync”, with ambiguous seduction and gender identification. Cape Town has a scintillating DRAG tradition that dates back to the thirties, especially in vibrant District Six. Today the pageants, the parties, the hair dressing salons, and the fabulous drag queen “balls” still flourish across the City. However, it`s often hosted in underground clubs, catering to a select few who know where to find them. ABFAB DRAG endeavours to put the crème de la crème of DRAG centre stage.

It features top class, DRAG divas Vida Fantabisher, SA’s Got Talent 2016 runner-up Manila von Teez, as well as Kat Gilardi, Jayde Kay Johnson and Angel Lalamore of drag cabaret group 3D fame, all choreographed and put together with the sublime dancers of the Jazzart Dance Theatre. MC Soli Philander is no stranger to the Artscape Stage and will narrate you through this magical show. Basil Appollis stiches it all together and cracks the designer whip as director.

We boast with “SOLD OUT” houses in previous years so book early.
