...supporting the LGBTQ+ Community Center

  • Sat, Apr 17, 20217:30 pm Tickets

    Tickets will be held in the box office unless otherwise requested.


The Heyde Center for the Arts is proud to partner with Matt Nyman (organizer) for a brand-new event in the Chippewa Valley! During the month of January 2021, five members (Jekyl, Felicia, Monica, Khloe, and Benny) of the Chippewa Valley Drag Entertainment scene will coach an individual who has never graced the drag stage with their presence. The five Drag Pros will teach their newcomer about the use of makeup, costuming, and performance in preparation for a night where they will perform for the very first time as their new drag persona! Their transformation process will be documented and shared on social media in the weeks leading up to the performance.

Each “Drag Master” and their “student” will perform at Strut with the Chippewa Valley Stars for a total of ten performances all in one spectacular night to raise funding and awareness of the Chippewa Valley LGBTQ+ Community Center. The main two goals of the evening are to: (1) have fun; and (2) raise funding to support the LGBTQ+ Community Center. The mission of the Chippewa Valley LGBTQ+ Community Center is to provide services and create educational programs that promote well-being and unity within and among the LGBTQ+ community. The CV LGBTQ Community Center works to promote understanding, tolerance, and acceptance of the LGBTQ+ community and of individuals within the Chippewa Valley region. If you would like to support the LGBTQ+ Community Art Center, click here to visit their website.

Event Tickets: $10 per person with a portion of the ticket supporting the CV LGBTQ+ Community Center. Tips collected the night of the event will support the Drag Pros and the Community Center. Full cash bar will be available.

We realize that the end of January 2021 may still be too soon to host large gatherings; so we are exploring live streaming and/or other options such as rescheduling depending on Covid19 regulations at the time of the event.
