Spring AwakeningLa Cage aux Folles & The Legend of Georgia McBride

July 13 - 29, 2018, Crafton-Preyer Theatre

Everything’s sparkle dust, bugle beads and ostrich plumes at La Cage aux Folles, the fabulous French night club Georges owns (and serves as master of ceremonies) and where Albin, Georges' husband of 20 years, stars as the spectacular drag queen Zaza. Things get less fabulous and more farcical when their son, Jean-Michel, shows up with his fiancée and her ultra-conservative parents in tow. This adaptation of the play that inspired The Birdcage promises an evening full of lashes, laughter, and, ultimately, love.

In a rags to riches story, Casey is living his young dreams and barely scraping by as an Elvis impersonator in Florida. When it rains, it really pours: Casey’s wife tells him she’s pregnant and Casey is drafted to fill the big stiletto shoes of an absent drag queen in a life-changing turn of luck. In The Legend of Georgia McBride, sometimes learning to be a man requires learning to be a really exquisite woman.
