After a full week of activities, the grand finale of this year’s Central Alberta Pride Week promises to end the festivities with flair, flourish and a whole lot of fun!
The celebrated Las Vegas entertainer, well-known from Season 8 of RuPaul’s Drag Race, is considered one of the best Britney Spears impersonators on the stage today, says event producer Dany Caicco.
In addition to recent TV and music video roles, Barry has performed on the Las Vegas Strip for a decade, including starring as both Britney and Gaga in Divas Las Vegas from 2009 to 2015, and today enjoys a busy international tour schedule.
Also on stage August 18 at the Sheraton Red Deer Hotel will be an awesome and vivacious crew of Central Alberta drag queens (and one king!), including Sparkle Emotion, Kelli Eletrix, Ruby Harte, Visa DeKline, DD Fierce, and Duke Carson with James Demers as emcee. It’s a not-to-be-missed evening!
Dance party follows Drag Show
An 18+ event with cash bar and concession available, both table seating and a limited amount of theatre seating will be available.
“It’s just a whole lot of fun and everyone is welcome,” Caicco says, noting the hugely popular show that welcomed over 500 people last year is expecting about 800 this year, from Central Alberta and beyond. “We’re getting people flying in from all over Canada!”
And the fun doesn’t end when Barry’s “Britney” leaves the stage. DJ Suco, one of the top DJs in Alberta, will have you dancing right through last call at 1 a.m.
“It’s one of the largest events Central Alberta will see and it’s definitely one of the best dance parties!” Caicco says.
