CARBONDALE, Ill. -- The Spring Drag Show 2010 brings some of the region’s most popular drag queens and kings to Southern Illinois University Carbondale on Feb. 5. 

They’ll display their talents with song, dance and more on the runway in the Student Center Ballrooms at 8 p.m.  Doors open at 7 p.m.  Admission is $5 per person, payable at the door.

              The entertaining show usually draws a crowd of hundreds.  Favorite artistes including Blanche DuBois and Kara Belle will perform alongside newcomer Ananecia Diamond and others.  

Brave crowd members can even participate in suicide drag if they like.  You can sign up that evening and one man and one woman will get the chance to be transformed into a entertainer of the opposite sex.  The audience drag queen and king will then perform together on stage.

              The Saluki Rainbow Network and Special Programs and Center Events (SPACE) are sponsors for the Spring Drag Show 2010.  For more information about the event, contact SPACE at 618/453-1142.
