This Party's a DRAG!

invite you to

One Night Only!

Saturday May 9th, 2015
8pm - Midnight

at the Frenetic Theater
5102 Navigation Blvd, 77011


For one night only, enter a special, secret world where gender lines are shaken, stirred and blurred. Embrace your inner Drag King or Queen! Celebrate Androgyny! Anything Goes!

People have been dressing in drag for centuries. Shakespeare was crazy for cross-dressing characters and many of his most famous plays featured male and female gender benders. In more recent times, artists like Divine, Lady Gaga, David Bowie, Annie Lennox, Prince, and Conchita Wurst have broken boundaries, defying masculine and feminine stereotypes. Films such as Victor/Victoria, Tootsie, The Birdcage, and Kinky Boots, as well as TV shows like Kids in the Hall, RuPaul's Drag Race, and Portlandia have brought drag into the homes and hearts of middle America.

So have some fun! Go full-out with false eyelashes, a fabulous wig and a furry beard or mix it up. Ladies: here's the perfect excuse to purchase that sensational menswear tailored suit! Gents: Grab some eyeliner and experience the thrill of looking like an 80's pop star!

This party will be like no other this year. Drag shows! Fantastic DJs! Performances from some of your favorite Catastrophic performers! Tea Parties and Tailgaters! A Transformation Salon! Compete in our Foundation Undergarment Challenge! Tear it up at our Manly-Man Obstacle Course!

Did we mention food? No need to be "lady-like", at Catastrophic we like to chow down. Pile your plates with a dazzling array of delectables from quiche and petit fours to bacon and BBQ. We've got dinner covered.

Top off the night with a win at our silent auction and raffle (DVD of Paris is Burning and a trip to France, anyone?).

And for you extra special supporters, we've got a Special VIP Cocktail Hour* complete with scotch, cosmopolitans, Shirley Temples, and Lee Press-on Nails for one and all!
