Tampa Bay’s Overheard: Your son’ll come out tomorrow

MattocS Productions, American Stage and the Suncoast AIDS Theatre Project will bring their latest Pride parody musical to St. Petersburg on June 25 with “Dannie.”

The spoof “skewers one of Broadway’s biggest blockbusters,” American Stage advises. It follows Scott Daniel’s Dannie, a young orphan with big dreams of starring on “RuPaul’s Drag Race.” The awful Miss Mannigan (Matthew McGee) aims to stop her—while Sugar Daddy Bigbucks (Jonathan Harrison) tries to adopt the orphan to “bankroll her dreams of stardom.”

All of the actors involved perform for free with 100 percent of ticket sales donated to Metro Wellness and Community Centers. Last year’s “Golden Gurlz Live” raised over $12,000, McGee says. “I want to do more this year,” he adds, “and I think ‘Dannie’ is the show that can do that. It should be a heck of a good time; we’re looking forward to it. We’re basically just going to lampoon the whole situation.”

“Dannie” is currently scheduled to run at American Stage on June 25 for two shows only at 7 and 9 p.m. VIP tickets are $35 and general admission is $20. Both can be purchased at americanstage.org.
