The opening act of the Crazy Señoritas show at the Ponoka Golf Club July 28 had attendees in stitches. The comedy drag show will be in Saskatchewan and in British Columbia.

Second time around no ‘drag’ for audience

Ponoka Golf Club impersonation show proves popular again

A second time around and the ‘ladies’ from Mexico proved they still have what it takes to put on a great show.

The female impersonator show, the Crazy Señoritas, was once again featured at the Ponoka Golf Club July 28 with a large crowd coming to enjoy the drag queen special. There were a few changes to the layout of the show to allow attendees a chance to better see the female impersonators as they performed.

Promoted by Merv Buchanan with Trend Entertainment, and Hugh Gaffney, co-owner of Luna Lounge in Bucerías, Nayarit, the show originally started at the Luna Lounge but it’s quickly becoming a popular experience.

Last year the group put on 10 shows.

“This year, we’ll be here for over a month,” said Buchanan. “We’re doing like 30 shows.”

For Gaffney, the performers are pleased to host these additional shows in Canada as this is a slow season for them in Bucerías.

And the ladies were ready: Miss Diva Divine, the Queen of Comedy, kept things moving as the hostess, while Miss Angie Star, Miss Mauri, Miss Dany Sodi kept folks entertained and laughing. A tip here and there would get an unsuspecting husband a special performance and everyone had their cameras ready.

Gaffney says the Crazy Señoritas drag show is designed for a general audience and incorporates quite a bit of humour. But he also feels that shows like this are becoming more accepted.

Interest is becoming strong with Buchanan saying that there’s interest from places in the east coast.

The group is heading to Saskatchewan and then back to Alberta for a few shows before making its way to British Columbia. For more information visit www.lunaloungebucerias.com/canada-tour-2018.html.
