Don’t tell the Rethugicans but Seattle’s Museum of Pop Culture is offering up a summer camp for kids this summer that might just put them over the edge of sanity!
Oh, who am I kidding….they went over that edge DECADES AGO!!!
And, it’s not even a new camp…MoPop has done this in years past, too. Drag-tastic: The Art of Drag Camp was so popular, that it returns for Summer 2023. They’re even providing TWO separate options this year with the first offering happening July 24-28 and the second one from August 7-11.
They have other kinds of camps, too, if your child isn’t into dragging it up. AND, they even have scholarships available….go to https://mopop.org/summercamp for more info on all the camps but here’s so more skinny about the drag camp:
Calling all current and future kings and queens! Explore self-expression in MoPOP’s drag-tastic summer camp! Led by Seattle performer Joshua Hancock, you’ll investigate drag history and work together with local artists to create your own personas. You’ll choose your name, explore hair and makeup techniques, and develop your character’s stage presence. At the end of the week, celebrate your new drag personas with a private showcase!
Tuition: $380 if registered prior to 5/31, $400 is registered after 5/31. MoPOP members receive a $25 discount on camps.
