FRESH FACE returns! Asbury Park's beloved amateur pageant returns to find out who will be the next Fresh Face of Drag!
Fresh Face began in 2016 by Rhedd Rhumm with the assistance of Lady Celestina and Kinsey Spectrum, as an educational program of Project REAL. The pageant was designed to help, teach, and uplift the next generation of drag performers. Contestants begin their journey in June - meeting monthly for workshops that center on the fundamentals of drag - leading up to the grand event in November. After being interrupted by the COVID-19 pandemic, Fresh Face was revived by Lady Celestina, no longer a program of Project REAL, but as an independent entity that benefits the drop-in center.
Doors will open at 6:00pm with the event beginning at 7:00pm.
Host: Rhedd Rhumm
Organizer: Lady Celestina
Stage Management: Kinsey Spectrum
Contestants: Anita Taste, Daisy Maize, Kandi Korvey, Mary Jane Monroe, Xaya T
Judges: Divinity Banks, Hibiscus, Kimmy Sumony, Nikky Sky Blake
The winner of Fresh Face will win a crown, sash, and $500 grand prize.
Tipping the performers is strongly encouraged.
