Racers, did you see Adelaide’s own Mary’s Poppin featuring in the first episode of RuPaul’s Drag Race Down Under?
Well, it was iconic, and if you missed it – not to worry! You can see each episode at Mary’s live screening events which kick off every Saturday at 8pm.
The first event on Saturday was hosted by Berri Juicy & Miss Thermodynamics. Although that event was special because it showcased the episode starring Mary’s Poppin donating $3,000 “doolars” for the main challenge, there will be screening parties every week until the season finishes.
“Watching the show each Saturday at Mary’s will mean fans will see the stars first-hand on the big screen while drinking some fabulous cocktails, soaking up the community atmosphere with a venue full of fans, watching performances by our hosts and then kicking on into the night starring the Mary’s Divas in nine fabulous production shows,” Stephen Craddock, Mary’s Poppin’s owner, says.
Stephen has been touring Rupaul’s Drag Race stars for more than a decade through his business In The Dark Events, so he was excited to also get Mary’s involved in the inaugural episode. The popular Synagogue Place nightclub—which has hosted Drag Race superstars Michelle Visage, Katya, Trixie Mattel, Alaska Thunderfuck, Detox and more in the past—also donated $3,000 in cash to the winner of episode one.
“Mary’s over the years has hosted so many of the Rupaul’s Drag Race stars, so this felt so natural to us. We couldn’t be more proud to support our local Australian drag artists!”
