swatch dogs and diet cokeheadsFor many, the word "prom" conjures mascara-stained memories of prickly corsages, tacky taffeta and a mound of hair that was too poofy for its own good. Fortunately, it's these nostalgic horrors that could garner you the crown at Dumpsta' Players' 14th annual Prom Trash debacle. Artistic director Ricky Paul says he expects to see a diverse variety of drag performers scratching for the chance to be coronated trashiest queen. "Past contestants have been gay, straight, men or women," he says, "It gives people a chance to be something they never could be." This year's spectacle pays homage to our favorite mean girl flicks, so watch out for a pack of Heathers in the audience testing the competitors with their heckles, hisses and bitchy glares.
Wed., April 21, 11 p.m., $1.99, Bob & Barbara's, 1509 South St., 215-545-4511, dumpstaplayers.org.
