Don’t be a drag. Help our drag queens sparkle!

About the Project

What do you do when your Elvis act gets the axe? With a pregnant wife, an empty bank account and an eviction notice coming his way, Casey has no choice but to trade his jumpsuit for sequins and strut his stuff as the Florida panhandle’s newest drag queen. This music-filled comedy about finding your true voice will leave you laughing and rooting for the underdog.

Coming this spring, Actor’s Express presents Matthew Lopez’s hip-swiveling, sashaying comedy The Legend of Georgia McBride. To bring you the best drag show in town, we have to dress these queens to the nines. But wigs, sequins and high heels aren’t cheap (at least not for these fabulous ladies). Here’s what we need to bring you a a show that will dazzle:


Talent $6,000 - This show has not 1, not 2, but 3 drag queens. That’s a lot of talent for one stage!
Runway $2,000 - There’s no show without a runway. Our drag queens need a place to strut their stuff and entertain.
Couture $1,500 - These costumes are going to be custom-built and over the top!
Hair and Makeup $500 - We’ve got to keep these divas in fabulous hair and makeup for five weeks.

Actor’s Express strives to bring daringly provocative and audaciously hilarious theatre to Atlanta, and this show is sure to turn some heads.

Don't forget! All donations will be matched 1:1 by the City of Atlanta Mayor's Office of Cultural Affairs.
