Gallery: Drag show at The Lyric

Sara Shaver , Staff Photographer

Drag at The Lyric! returned with a Halloween twist the evening of Oct. 21. Hosted by Krisa Gonna, the show featured performances by Ursa LaBear, Liz Agna and Little Sarah Tonin. Performances — including costume, dance and song — were representative of different horror and Halloween films, from “Children of the Corn” to “Carrie.” The Lyric’s facilities allowed for big screen projections of visuals from the films that inspired each performance. Between routines, audience members were invited to the stage for festive trivia and games. Attendees were encouraged to come in costume or drag, and after the show, those who wanted to were able to meet and take photos with the performers.
