Your Royalness speaks:

“House of Kings is turning our monthly OPEN STAGE into a Fundraiser for #TheMaxJohnsonProject! We have EIGHT spots to fill on our Open Stage! And TWO very special performances from internationally acclaimed Drag Kings, Maximum Capacity and Flare!

House of Kings was created to give Drag Kings in Toronto more stage time. We host two shows a month (1) open stage and (1) booked show. We encourage new drag performers to take advantage of our open stage! Open stages also welcome stand-up comedy, performance art and general awesomeness. 
(More details on the open stage below)

What The MaxJohnson Project is About: 
After the Austin International Drag Festival, two King Me: Rise of a Drag King cast members Max Ryder and Hugh Johnson embarked on tour together and ended up in a life-threatening car accident. Like absolute superheroes, they survived. But the recovery has not been easy or affordable. This show is one of many around North America and the UK that is raising funds for the boys. To learn more about them and the fundraiser, follow this link: https://www.gofundme.com/Helpmaxandhugh?fbclid=IwAR0gt0_U4Sq_Y2MGzrY9HzIC3CapNTzDU5g46AwSC9VxRnF9nWH-qkFMLJI ♥

You'll have a way to donate to #themaxjohnsonproject throughout the entire show! When the doors open at 8pm, you will have a chance to start buying raffle tickets for one or all of our (amazing) raffle prizes, ranging from a "Drag King Kit" to "Wine Kit" to a Personalized Valentines Dinner... passes to a fitness centre with a pool... and more prizes, all valued at $60-$80!
