Live dragalong! Little Shop of Horrors!

If there’s one thing 2021 needs it’s an omnisexual man-eating plant from outer space in a live drag extravaganza!

Fringe! and Crayola the Queen invite you to queer the cult classic musical Little Shop of Horrors (Frank Oz, 1986) in this one-off in-person paradise in Colours Hoxton. Starring Rick Moranis, Ellen Greene, Steve Martin and a giant avocado with teeth, Little Shop tells the gentle story of a two florist’s assistants who variously enable murder for a taste of fame and dream of escaping toxic masculinity to go and live “Somewhere That’s Green”. #Growth

Alongside our screening of the universe’s most bloodthirsty musical, live drag performances from some of London’s best artists Holestar, Beau Jangles and Miss Terri Boxx will re-cultivate the film as a thorn in the side of the cis-hetero-patriarchy. The ghost of the musical’s lyricist Howard Ashman will even appear live on stage, embodied by writer Adam Zmith, in an all-original queer introduction.

So “stop right where you are, don't you move a thing!” Grab a ticket for this queer monstrosity now!

Crayola the Queen is an international drag artist, singer, comedian and MC. Whether performing one of her naughty queer cabarets in London, keeping it profesh for corporate events online, or inspiring young and old with children’s shows and educational workshops, Crayola routinely brings a lot of heart and a lot of LOLs!

Holestar is a pioneering AFAB Drag Queen, belting live vocalist, DJ, promoter and Mistress of Ceremonies since 2003. The first AFAB Queen to win best Drag Act at the London Cabaret Awards, perform on Sunday at London's infamous Royal Vauxhall Tavern and to grace a solo cover of QX Magazine. She is currently nominated for Outstanding Contributor at the British LGBT awards 2021. Holestar has released her own music (Queen of F***ing Everything EP), performed internationally (from USA to Cambodia), is cofounder and star of drag documentary, 'Dressed As A Girl' and appeared at events from Vienna's Life Ball, Copenhagen Pride, Glastonbury Festival and RuPaul's DragCon, L.A.

Beau Jangles is a sharp-dressing, whisky-swilling ladies’ man. He came all the way from the 1940s to let his jazz wash all over you. Beau is a founding member of The Family Jewels collective and was a Man Up 2019 finalist (at the time of writing, the world’s largest drag king competition).  Beau has performed at various venues across London, including The Barbican, The Grand, The Glory, The Southbank Centre, EartH, The Royal Vauxhall Tavern, and with the Cocoa Butter Club. Beau has appeared in The Evening Standard, Paper, and Vogue Italia - The Guardian recently called Beau “A compelling host”. Pre-pandemic, Beau produced, hosted and performed at ‘Royal Roost’, a regular drag king night at The Chateau. 

"What's in the Box??" Miss Terri Boxx could bring you something spooky, something that's cute and sexy, or a combination of all there. Whatever it is, you'll probably be confused and most definitely thrilled!

Adam Zmith is a writer and podcaster. His book on the history of poppers, Deep Sniff, comes out in September 2021 and is available to pre-order now. He is also the co-producer of The Log Books podcast, telling untold stories from Britain’s LGBTQ+ history. Adam is always writing fiction too, and is the literature programmer for Fringe! Queer Film & Arts Fest.
