Sequined Dragnolias

A site specific, gender non-specific, kiki!

Serving Parody

No Shade

Sept 19 - 29

Talking Heads Barber Shop

415 Bond Street, Asbury Park, NJ 07712

90 minutes - No intermission 

You are hereby invited to a meeting of The Joy Fried Magnolias Sisterhood of the First Wives Exhaling on Beaches of Endearment Club, where big hair and even bigger personalities take center stage.

Take it all in, hunty, as our cast of drag queens, trans, non-binary, and cis actors spoof a classic and much-loved dramedy genre that explores the lives, loves, and friendships of the superior sex. Get ready for the timeless wit and heart of those films to be lampooned with an overdose of charisma, uniqueness, nerve, and talent that will leave you gagging. Be sure to bring your Kleenex because they intend to sashay into your tear ducts with a ROFL brand of laughter, love, and heartbreak.

Our one-of-a-kind site-specific staging at Talking Heads Barbershop kicks off with an improvisational pre-show adventure you won't want to miss! Arrive early for a personalized fitting of proportionizing padding and take-home tips for a truly glamorous, runway-ready, beat face. "Sequined Dragnolias" promises to be as unforgettable as it is sickening. Okayyyy?"
