The Drag-Opticon Show
About The Drag-Opticon Show

Drag-Opticon is a variety night set in the stunning Britannia Panopticon Music Hall right in the heart of Glasgow's city centre.

Blending the world of cabaret and drag together, this is a variety show with a twist, it's all done in drag!

Expect amazing looks, entertaining performances and a lot of lip syncing! Previous performances have included live singing, improv, numbers from popular musicals, comedy, dance including ballet and burlesque, acting, cosplay, lip syncing (of course) and even playing the saw as a musical instrument!

Comprising of mostly local talent we have had performers from up and down the country and even America and Greece.

End a long working month and start your weekend off with a bang by coming to see a fabulous show where the unexpected is definitely expected with an abundance of feel good factor thrown in too.

Tickets available at: tickets-scotland.com

Additional Dates: 29 September 2017, 13 October 2017, 24 November 2017

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for The Drag-Opticon Show are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
