Ponoka Golf Club to host Crazy Señoritas drag show

The Crazy Señoritas are returning to the Ponoka Golf Club for another night of entertainment and fun on July 28.

This show comes a month after Roy Orbison impersonator Michael Danckert is set to entertain at the golf club. Danckert presents his show on June 27 at the club.

This troupe of female impersonators from Puerto Vallarta, Mexico have for seven years drawn sellout crowds of holidaying Canadians to the popular Luna Lounge dinner shows, in nearby Bucerias. Their show features humorous musical tributes, warped adult humour and hilarious interactions with members of the audience.

Entertainment columnist Debbie White of the Puerto Vallarta Tribune says “the girls” have put together a very entertaining show that audiences love. The song parodies are hysterical and the costumes and skits are superb. The Crazy Señoritas show has been a “can’t miss” event in the Puerto Vallarta area for years.

Admittedly, “drag shows” aren’t for everyone, but these young Mexican actors have a way of winning over audiences, who soon forget they are not women, but men disguised as women. Often, the people who are the most reluctant to attend are surprised at how much fun they have. And they return again and again, with relatives and friends in tow.

So why has this group of entertainers from Puerto Vallarta, been invited to perform in some 30 communities scattered all over western Canada? It’s really no mystery at all. Most of their winter audience is Canadians from B.C., Alberta and Saskatchewan, fleeing the cold and snow.

Besides being a treat for their many fans, having the popular show in town gives everyone in the area a chance to enjoy it without having to travel to Mexico. Add to this the fact that the tour organizer is from Calgary and it all starts to make sense.

For those who can’t get enough of The Crazy Señoritas, their western tour is the cure.

During their two week visit in 2017, the troupe performed 10 shows in western Canada. Every show was a sellout and every venue invited them back. Their 2018 tour runs from July 26th through September 1st, and they are booked almost every single night.

On July 28th, they perform at the Ponoka Golf Club.
