The Norwich Arts Center presents Drag-a-licious, a drag show to raise funds in support of the arts in Norwich, on Friday, November 11, 2011 at the Donald L. Oat Theater at 8:00pm.  Returning to the NAC’s stage to bring a little sequined sparkle to Downtown Norwich, queen of glam JaDonna performs live along with other divas in lavish numbers in an evening full of surprises.   

Whether you’re an avid fan of drag shows or have yet to experience one, Drag-a-licious promises to be another glamorous evening of provocative and playful performances by some equally provocative and playful divas. The Norwich Arts Center's first drag show/fundraiser in June, also hosted by the fierce and fabulous JaDonna, was such a success that The Ladies are back and sassier than ever!  All new costumes. All new routines. Same bad attitude.  And beyond the big hair and wild ensembles, this event is an effort to help raise not only funds but awareness and appreciation for the arts in Norwich and the NAC’s cultural programming. 

It has dance, it has lip syncing, it has sensational fashion and serious shoes, and it may even have audience participation! Come support NAC and the arts scene in the Chelsea Arts District while enjoying this truly outrageous show!

This NAC fundraising event is BYOB but wine and hors d'oeuvres will be available.  Ticket prices for this event are $25 per person.  To purchase tickets, call the Norwich Arts Center / Donald L. Oat Theater Box Office at 860-887-2789, or tickets can be purchased through their web site at
