Roxanne’s Rivalry

“Roxanne’s Rivalry” is an hour and a half-long “Family Feud” style guessing game with a drag queen host, real audience participation, storytelling, saucy side commentary, tacky prizes and drag performances by special guests. This interactive show is devised and directed by Appalachian State University Theatre Professor Gordon Hensley and is designed to poke fun at the garish game show genre.

“It’s the littlest big show in town,” said Hensley, who has spent months developing the show’s concept and technical elements. “Your hilarious drag queen host Roxanne Davenport, daughter of bajillionaire Big Daddy Davenport, is a goofy upbeat pageant gal who is a family-friendly country bumpkin entertainer. She’s the Lady of the High Country. You’ll love her.”

The show is set during a fictional, long-running TV game show, placing the theatre audience in the role of the studio audience and then adding drag queens as hosts. Real audience members are chosen as the contestants of the game and they win fabulously tacky prizes. In addition to watching and playing the game show, the audience also witnesses a “dragstravaganza” of silly commercial breaks, stories, and pop-up drag performances by special guests.
