Lipstick & Lyrics: Into the Hood Lipstick & Lyrics: Into the Hood

A Mary-Tale

Presented by Michael Leppen. Join us for our 12th edition—now at the fabulous Park West with an expanded production under the direction of Tony Lewis of Mid Tangent Productions (Snow White and The Seven Drag Queens).

Hear your favorite fierce drag princesses sing live while on a quest to be the fairest at the ball, all while evading the scheming, evil villainesses. Talented fair maidens in fun costumes, sexy dancers in skimpy costumes, and amazing music highlight this see-and-be-seen event benefitting CGMC.

And don’t forget to bid on the Princess For A Night Drag Auction, because if you win you will join them all at the end of the show.

Come with a few friends or host a table up front. There’s a price-point and fun experience for everyone this year!

YuleTube: Holiday Favorites from Television YuleTube: Holiday Favorites from Television

Holiday Main Stage Show

The Christmas Queen wants to settle down and watch her favorite classic holiday specials on television, but her set is on the fritz. Whatever shall she do?

Watch her subjects from Chicago Gay Men’s Chorus save the day (and their necks) as they begin a fun romp reenacting her (and your) favorite holiday specials from Rankin and Bass (Rudolph, Frosty and the Grinch), Charlie Brown, The Muppets and a dozen more!

Come say farewell to our retiring Artistic Director Patrick Sinozich as he goes out with a bang and gives us a little old-school CGMC holiday fun—and it’s co-written by our own Bill Larkin!
