Saturday’s show is sold out but there are still tickets for Friday night.

After the pandemic shut everything down, social events are finally heating up the region, and one of the most popular fall events in the Southern Tier is back!

“It hasn’t happened in three years so they (performers) are excited to get on the stage and perform again”, says show founder and promoter Roger Laughlin of Elmira. “There’s a great energy.”

Glitz & Glamour, which was held at the Clemens Center in downtown Elmira for 20 years, is known as a fabulous showcase of local talent as well as for incredible performers coming to the area, specifically, for this uniquely exciting show.

Laughlin is excited to be holding this popular event after such a lengthy hiatus, and to offer attendees a new venue at which to catch the show.

”We have a lot more room at the country club,“ he says.

So expect an exciting and varied show from some of the area’s most talented female and male impersonators.

Glitz & Glamour will feature popular drag performers from the region like Sister Sasha, Viola, Justin Saine, Trisha Tyson and Trisha LaMorre. The evening will also include performances from well-known entertainers including Dusty Boxx, K.C. Mann, Oliver Love, Scope Kaleido, Ricardo, The Blues Brothers, Jezzika Jameson, Chocolate Cee, Vanessa LaDiva, Mabel Syrup, Starr, Mocha Love and Mikca Oxlong.

You won’t want to miss this show and since Friday is the only day with tickets still available, you’d better get your party posse together for a fabulously fun evening.
