An all-volunteer cast will present the one-night-only event on Saturday evening, February 23 at the Footlight Theatre.
Wanzie says “I ‘ve gone out of my way to put together a non-drag show line up of great acts not typically seen on stage at the Parliament House.” He further stated, “I’m so pleased by the straight men who did not hesitate for one moment before saying "yes" when approached about donating their time and talent to help raise funds for this great Gay and Lesbian resource; The Center offers a Cyber Center for our youth, meeting space for many independent social as well as critical support groups, a library, referral services, counseling, and 7-days-a-week free walk-in rapid HIV testing.”
The entertainment line-up (still being formulated) will thus far include:
The Magic of V
Sneak Preview Performances from Nick Gray’s upcoming show
BOYLESQUE: Sensuality N Motion
The Stand-up Comedy of Jeff Jones
Singers Chirs Sirois and Frank McClain
On Keyboards John DeHaas
And very special guest star
Orlando’s Ukulele Sensation!
All of the talent will appear free of charge and The Parliament House is providing the venue, as well as the technical staff required, so that 100% of all proceeds with go directly to the GLBT Community Center of Central Florida.
The 90-munitue fast paced Variety Show will be emceed by Wanzie with ticket prices ranging from a mere ten bucks for general admission to fifty smackers for the complete VIP experience:
