In celebration of its 4th Anniversary, Pretty Boi Drag will be producing its biggest show to date at Union Stage on Sunday, January 19, 2020.

“We’re excited to move to such a big venue, which opens up so many amazing possibilities for bigger and better performances and a much more exciting experience for our audience,” says Pretty Boi Drag co-Producer, Pretty Rik E.

“Our goal has always been to push the envelope,” he continued. “This will test our ability to fill a space and create the same intimate show we’re known for but on a larger scale. I have zero doubt that we’ll rise to the occasion and surpass our own expectations like we always do.”

The event will take place at Union Stage on Sunday, January 19, 2020. Doors will open at 7PM and the show will begin at 8PM. Both general admission and VIP tickets are available on the Union Stage website. Tickets are $25 online, $35 for VIP and $35 at the door.
