Island City Stage
Island City Stage, creating quality professional theatrical experiences focused on the LGBT+ community for a universal audience, has announced its 11th South Florida Season, and with it, the return of its popular Behind the Red Curtain community forum series. On September 28, from 6 – 7:30 p.m., the theater company, together with the Miss Florida F.I. (Florida Impersonator) Pageant, will present “Secrets of a Beauty Queen: No Tea, No Shade,” an entertaining, insightful and sometimes outrageous peek into the world of drag beauty pageants.
Moderated by Alyson Thomas, president and CEO of the Miss Florida F.I. Pageant and a seasoned professional in the art form of female impersonation, “Secrets of a Beauty Queen: No Tea, No Shade,” will feature stories from Velvet Lenore, Miss Florida F.I. at Large 2021-22 and Joanna James, Miss Florida F.I. Supreme 2021-22. Now celebrating its 50th anniversary, The Miss Florida F. I. Pageant, recognized as one of the top five national pageants, will take place October 2 and 3 at The Venue/The Manor Fort Lauderdale. It attracts some of the top female impersonators, film, TV and fashion stars from across the nation and beyond. Drinks and light bites for Island City Stage’s community forum will be courtesy of Pub on the Drive.
Last year, in honor of its 10th anniversary season, Island City Stage created the Behind the Red Curtain public forum series to engage patrons in timely, relevant issues that are both addressed in its productions and affect the South Florida community.
Tickets for “Secrets of a Beauty Queen: No Tea, No Shade,” are $10 each and include one cocktail courtesy of Pub on the Drive. RSVP at Here.
