(612) 244-4606 markhooker1 [at] mac.com FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE PLEASE INCLUDE FRINGE LOGO UNDER PHOTO IF PHOTOS ARE USED “The Miss Longview Texas Drag Pageant” Begins Merriment at Minnesota Fringe Festival Starting July 31st Brazen Theater presents the Minneapolis premiere of The Miss Longview Texas Drag Pageant, a new play written and directed by Mark Hooker and co-directed by Janice Orlandi (Bette Davis Ain’t For Sissies”) and produced by Joel Thingvall (Producers Association, and Managing Director, Brazen Theatre) beginning July 31st at Theatre In The Round at 245 Cedar Avenue, Minneapolis. The show runs for five performances: Thursday, July 31st at 7PM; Saturday, August 2nd at 10PM; Monday, August 4th at 7PM; Friday, August 8th at 5:30PM; and Saturday, August 9th at 8:30PM. This play is presented as part of this year’s Minnesota Fringe Festival. A gay Thanksgiving celebration at the Longview East Texas Victorian home of former drag performer, Dinky and his partner Renny replete with pinecone turkeys and apple martinis anticipates an evening Drag Contest at the local high school to be judged by none other than hometown boy and film star, Matthew McConaughey. The gathering is complicated by the unwelcome arrival of a saucy high school teacher and her sexually ambiguous former husband (the town sheriff) who expose secrets and deceptions of invited guests. Further mayhem ensues when an escaped convict takes the group hostage, and a mysterious light from the sky conjures thoughts of unwelcome alien guests, forcing everyone to ask the question, “are we alone in the universe”? Mark Hooker’s wild new comedy promises outrageous fun and an amusing homage to vintage television. The Miss Longview Texas Drag Pageant opened in New York City in December 2013 to marvelous reviews: Diana Prince Stewart F. Lane Productions …hysterical, reminiscent of all those theater of the ridiculous and absurd type comedies in the West Village decades ago… the cast was attractive and fearless… I didn’t expect to laugh so loudly… Kessa De Santis Off Broadway … packed with ideas… the pace is fast, and there are laughs to be had…This work has a bit of everything For tickets to this and all of the fringe shows, visit the official Minnesota Fringe Festival site at http://www.fringefestival.org
