Clusterfest isn't the only thing happening in Civic Center this weekend. There's also three performances by the San Francisco Gay Men's Chorus at the Sydney Goldstein Theater (formerly Nourse Theater at 275 Hayes Street).
The brand new show, which is in honor of Pride Month and the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Rebellion in New York, featuring songs that "pay tribute to the themes of strength, perseverance, and acceptance." And the show's being performed Friday at 8 p.m. and Saturday at 2:30 p.m. and 8 p.m. The show is called "QUEENS," and it also pays tribute to the Compton's Cafeteria Riot here in San Francisco, which took place three years before Stonewall, in 1966.
The show also features a tribute to the Imperial Court and Ducal Council of San Francisco.
Song selections include “Rise Up” by Andra Day, Paul Simon’s “The Sound of Silence,” “You Will Be Found” from Dear Evan Hansen, Sylvester’s “You Make Me Feel (Mighty Real),”and “Sticks and Stones,” from Andrew Lippa’s oratorio, I Am Harvey Milk.
In addition to the SFGMC's own cast of "drag all-stars," the show features appearances by local drag queens Donna Sachet, Sister Roma and Sister Phyllis of the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, Heklina, and Kylie Minono.
Tickets are still available, and you can find those here.
