Organizers behind the wildly popular Dragnique show at Jungle are holding open auditions Wednesday, Aug. 29 for the new show Dragnificent.
The winner of the seven-week re-branded drag competition will receive $1,000 in addition to other prizes, organizers said. The show kicks off Sept. 19 at Jungle, immediately following September's Big Gay Gameshow.
"The Fantasy Girls are super proud to be presenting Dragnificent," said organizer and local drag personality Phoenix. "We have so many surprises in store for the audience and the contestants."
Each week, Dragnificent's contestants will also donate their tips to a local charity. The first nonprofit to benefit from Dragnificent will be Lost-n-Found Youth, an organization dedicated to helping Atlanta's LGBT homeless youth transition to permanent housing.
The first week will feature special guest Nina Flowers. Flowers will join Phoenix and Dragnique Season 3 winner Edie Cheezburger as judges for the opening show.
Anyone interested in auditioning is invited to send an email to [email protected] before Monday, Aug. 27, with a photo and a short video explaining why they would make a good contestant. Open auditions will also be held Aug. 29 at Jungle at 8 p.m.
