Just in time for Halloween, NYU Skirball will present Once Upon a Drag, a performance/costume party for kids of all genders and ages, featuring eight of NYC’s brightest drag queens, on Sunday October 29 at 3 pm.  The show features new and improved versions of favorite fairy tales, adapted to teach life lessons that are relevant to today’s kids. Everyone is encouraged to dress as their favorite fairy tale character to join in on the fun.


No costume?  No worries! The drag queens will be giving one-minute-makeovers in the lobby starting at 2 pm.
