BANGOR – Get ready to drag yourself to the Bangor Arts Exchange for a one-person show unlike anything you’ve seen before.

“Livin’ For Drag: The Making of a Queen” is an original musical featuring Bangor’s own Priscilla Poppycocks and directed by Brad LaBree. With book and lyrics by Dominick Varney and music by Varney, Phil Burns and Harry Burns, the show will take place at the Bangor Arts Exchange on Dec. 4 and Dec. 5. Tickets are available at www.bangorartsexchange.com.

The show explores the journey of one Priscilla Poppycocks and her growth into the fabulous queen that she is today, an autobiographical journey loaded with laughter, tears and plenty of sass. Oh, and more than a few cocktails too.

To help prepare the Queen City for this particular queen, I reached out to speak to Miss Poppycocks (and Mr. Varney too, I guess) about this project. Both were gracious enough to respond to my questions via e-mail – I was unable to meet them in person, for fear of being overwhelmed by sheer fabulousness.

Winterport Open Stage presents Nunsense'

WINTERPORT They might have heavenly voices, but they're here to raise a little hell.

Winterport Open Stage is presenting their production of the musical 'Nunsense' with book, music and lyrics by Dan Goggin at the Wagner Middle School in Winterport. The production runs through April 28. Tickets are $10 ($8 for students and seniors).

The Little Sisters of Hoboken are in a bit of a bind. Their cook (Sister Julia, Child of God) has accidentally poisoned the majority of the convent's residents with a tainted fish stew. Only 19 sisters remain they survived due to being off playing Bingo. A handful of the survivors have thus taken it upon themselves to put on a show in an effort to raise funds to pay for the burials of their fallen sisters.
