Designing Women Drag Dinner
September 12, 4:00 pm - 8:00 pm CDT
Join Dickson Street Divas Maddy Morphosis, Dixie Love, Brooklyn Bisette, Taylor Madison Monroe, musicians from the Symphony of Northwest Arkansas, and NWA Equality program partner TheatreSquared as we celebrate the ladies of Designing Women!
With southern style and grace, this bold and ballsy foursome sparked a dialogue that provided a spotlight for the oppressed, a voice for women’s rights, and helped empower the LGBTQ community. These conversations remain relevant and continue to resonate 35 years later, as does the legacy of the strong southern women of Sugarbaker & Associates.
Specialty cocktails created by Maxine's Tap Room begin at 4:00 p.m. An elegant dinner with a served southern buffet catered by IDK Cafe at 5:00, with our program and show to follow. All cocktails, beer, and wine are included with each ticket.
Reservations are available in mixed seating and single table blocks of eight. Please make reservations through our Stubs box office by Thursday, September 9th.
100% of the proceeds benefit the LGBTQ charitable activities of Northwest Arkansas Equality, Inc.
