Drag show set on Friday

URBANA — The sixth annual Illini Union Board Drag Show, "Divas Old and New," will take place at 9 p.m. Friday in the Illini Union I rooms on the west side of the first floor. The doors will open at 8:30.

Tickets sold in advance at the Illini Union Quad Shop are $5 for students with an I-card and $7 for the public. Tickets purchased at the door will be $7 and $10, respectively.

Sponsored by the Illini Union Board, the Drag Show has gained in popularity since its premiere in 2008. The live performances will feature singing and dancing, as well as at least two ensemble numbers.

The Illini Union Board encourages people who attend to bring $1 bills for tipping the performers, all male. Some are UI students. Others are from out of town and are invited to perform, according to Megan Laz of Illini Union Marketing.
