Come one, come all — the 9th annual Boylesque Festival is returning to Seattle with a new set of performers ready to dazzle you with their stand-up comedy routines, rousing drag performances, and circus acts.

Boylesque, which stems from a combination of the words “boy” and “burlesque,” is a loose categorization for drag- or burlesque-like performances which generally play on masculine gender roles.

The festival runs Friday, April 5 + Saturday, April 6 at the Triple Door with two completely different casts on both nights. Performers like Matt Adore and Antonio Amor come from far off lands like Chicago and New York City, but you can also expect Seattle-grown acts like Trojan Original and Judas Saint James to make an appearance.

Tickets are on sale and range from $30-$55 per person.
