Mistresses of Mayhem -- The Ladies of the Rainbow Return
Please join the Vermont Folklife Center in welcoming back to their home turf the legendary drag troupe, "Ladies of the Rainbow" for a fun and bawdy performance entitled "Mistresses of Mayhemthe Ladies of the Rainbow Return" on Saturday April 26, 2014.
Hosted at the Brattleboro VFW hall, the doors open at 7:00 pm for the 8:00 pm performance. This evening of adult comedy and entertainment (18+) represents the 10th anniversary of the Ladies' first downtown Brattleboro appearance and is a fundraiser (and a fun-raiser) to support the work of the Vermont Folklife Center.
These glamorous and talented drag performers, including Mama Mayhem, Candi Shtick, and Kitty Rawhide, arrive fresh from performances in Keene, NH, the Brattleboro Museum and Art Center, and Burlington City Arts, bringing their unique blend of mellifluous lip-synching and raucous commentary to the Brattleboro VFW hall.
The Ladies of the Rainbow have been captivating area audiences since their first days performing at the Rainbow Cattle Co. in Dummerston, VT in the late 1990's. The story of their journey is creatively captured in an exhibit of photographs and audio interview excerpts, organized by the Vermont Folklife Center, entitled Backstage at the Rainbow Cattle Co., photographs by Evie Lovett.
This exhibit is on a three-year tour, with assistance from the Samara Fund of the Vermont Community Foundation, visiting venues in all 14 counties of Vermont, including a showing at the Brattleboro Museum and Art Center in 2015. As one of the Vermont Folklife Center's traveling exhibits it is part of our continuous effort to make Vermonters visible to one another.
The Brattleboro VFW hall is located at 40 Black Mountain Road.
With the performance will be a cash bar, silent auction, and other fun-filled opportunities to support the work of the Vermont Folklife Center throughout the evening.
The Vermont Folklife Center's mission is to broaden, strengthen, and deepen our understanding of Vermont and the surrounding region; to assure a repository for our collective cultural memory; and to strengthen communities by building connections among the diverse peoples of Vermont.
