Get Your Pride On With Queens, Kings & Things

The Queen of East Vancouver

The Campbell River Pride party is returning to the Tidemark Theatre on June 25.

East Vancouver’s Isolde N. Barron is stopping in Campbell River on her Queens, Kings and Things tour on the Island. She is joined by Peach Cobblah and Rose Butch.

Barron is a multifaceted theatre artist. Past Entertainer of the Year, her fundraising endeavours at High School Confidential, For the Girls and Queer Bash earned her a “Drag Queen of the Year” nomination for Xtra’s Hero Awards.

Peach Cobblah is known as the Baddest Bitch of Vancouver. With her wife Isolde N. Barron she co-created Tucked & Plucked: Drag Herstory Live Onstage which has appeared extensively in Vancouver and Surrey and will premiere in Victoria next year. Cobblah created and hosts Shame Spiral, a devilishly regretful weekly drag show at 1181 in Vancouver’s West end which was recently acknowledged as Best Drag Show by The Westender’s Best of Vancouver.

Paige “Ponyboy” Frewer is a gender fluid drag king, and the producer-host of Man Up, a monthly queer cabaret and dance party at the Cobalt in Vancouver. In 2013, they launched Amateur Hour, an open-call, all-levels queer variety show that provides stage time, mentorship opportunities, and sometimes paid gigs, to aspiring gender performers. After 8 years of performing, Ponyboy has become increasingly passionate about event production, connecting queer performers to new audiences, and bringing people together in community space.

Rose Butch is a non-binary drag thing. They are a regular performer at East Van’s monthly gender cabaret, Man Up, and the 2015 winner of the Mr/Miss Cobalt competition.

Tickets for the festival can be purchased at the box office at Tidemark on Tuesday and Friday from 12-4 p.m. or online at tidemarktheatre.com.
