Baby Queens (a TV Pilot) (staged reading) @ Theatre Battery (Kent)

By Sydney Painter

Staged reading — part of the Battery Powered Series

Three intrepid, gender non-conforming kids attempt to start a drag club at their middle school. Despite systemic opposition, they get their favorite teacher, who may or may not have his own rocky history with drag, on board with their vision. As they take on the challenges both of drag as an art form and of rattling the cage of their unified school district, they learn as much about themselves and their community as they do about eyelash glue and voguing.

Running Time: 60 minutes, with post-reading discussion

Location: Theatre Battery at Kent Station (444 Ramsay Way, Suite 107 — next to Gentle Dental and a few doors down from Panera Bread)

Tickets (free) here.
