Don’t miss the remarkable experience of the House of Pink

Mark your calendars for October 26, and get ready to witness a breathtaking performance that will leave an indelible mark on your heart.

House of Pink will return to Market Theatre stages for five performances only.

Volume 3, scheduled to start on October 26, promises an unforgettable experience filled with fun, music, and top-tier entertainment.

Directed by Lebohang Toko, this third edition of the gender-bending and wildly popular drag show will take audiences through the ever-evolving stages of what we now fondly know as the culture of drag.

This art form has captured the hearts of audiences worldwide for decades, and its roots trace back to the late 19th century. What began as a subversive and revolutionary expression of gender identity has evolved into a powerhouse art form that transcends traditional gender norms.

At its core, drag celebrates diversity, self-expression, and empowerment. From the heady, groundbreaking performances at legendary venues like the Stonewall Inn in the 1960s, which played a pivotal role in the LGBTQ+ rights movement, to its present mainstream popularity with reality TV competitions like RuPaul’s Drag Race, drag emerged as a symbol of resilience and LGBTQ+ pride.

House of Pink Volume 3 pays homage to the drag pioneers who paved the way for today’s queens and kings, showcasing the evolution of this art form over time.

The costumes are flamboyant, the performances are extravagant, and the show celebrates self-identity. It’s a space where artists can be true to themselves and inspire others to do the same, reinforcing the idea that diversity should be celebrated, not hidden.

House of Pink Volume 3 is an opportunity to be entertained and immerse oneself in the history of a culture that continues to break boundaries. It is a chance to be a part of a celebration that reminds us of the importance of acceptance, resilience, and the enduring spirit of the LGBTQ+ community.
