Event Description

xx MONSTER MASH xx: the search for Victoria's next premiere

Featuring local LGBTQ+ artists operating on the unceded territory of the Lekwungen-speaking, Esquimalt and WSÁNEĆ people.
Hosted by Kibbles n Bits and (brutally) judged by the Occult family. Monster crowning ritual and dance party afterwards.

Expectations and Rules:
-One performance 3-6 mins which embodying your most demonic self.
-Judged on:
1) Theatrics: audience captivation and performance
2) DIYness: monsters don't understand what a credit card is
3) Grotesque: aesthetically disgusting
No mess. No mess. NO MESSSSS
-A brief and grotesquely political QA round
-Contestants sign up by posting in this event.
-Aligning with our haus values, every contestant will be given an entry prize proportional to the event's ticket sales/attendance.

Ultimate Prizes:
-Glorious monster crown crafted by the Occult pet's filthy paws
-Starring in a gloriously disgraceful, climactic, and messy crown christening involving audience participation, medieval restraints, a nearby dumpster and the haus' beloved (and unruly) pet.
-Haus Merch basket
-Headlining spot in an upcoming Haus of Occult Death by Drag show

-Haus merch
-Tickets to upcoming Death by Drag events
-Drink tickets

-Drink tickets!

$13 at the door or discounted online
Doors: 10pm, Contest and subsequent debauchery: 11pm

We think this goes without saying, but our event is a QUEER/INTERSECTIONAL-FEMINIST/TRANS space which is HET/CIS **FRIENDLY**. Take your transphobic/misogynist/free-speacher/racist/otherwise bigoted beliefs elsewhere and shove it!

Our security and service staff is aware of our community's needs and discomforts so if anything happens to you which makes you uneasy, mention it to ANYONE on the staff or in our cast and the person in question will be removed without hesitation.

We have 20+ seats arranged which can be reserved ahead of time for guests who require seating.

We are unfortunately aware of the accessibility restrictions that exist at the Copper Owl. There is a large set of carpeted stairs upon entry of the venue, but we have staff available to assist in any way they can for you to join us.
