Darrin Hagen transforms from parade mermaid to Dragula


Darrin Hagen is a founding member of Guys In Disguise, a drag show comedy troupe who have been creating sold-out shows for over 3 decades. Our Fringe columnist Peter Brown spoke with Darrin about the many projects he has on the go…and the Fringe Festival that launched it all.

“Without The Fringe I wouldn’t have a career.” – Darrin Hagen

Just a note – Darrin mentions two of his collaborators in Guys in Disguise – his producer Kevin Hendricks and the award-winning writer/ actor and director Trevor Schmidt.

If you’re in Edmonton, you can see Darrin’s photographs at the Varscona Theatre. For information about the recorded version of his play Dragula, follow @GuysinDisguise on twitter.

From August 10th – 21st, CKUA is celebrating The Edmonton Fringe that Never Was.

For almost 40 years, the lifeblood of the Edmonton Fringe has been thousands of volunteers, technicians and support staff. Wednesday August 12th at 5:45 pm MT, the people who keep the machine running will tell us what makes the Fringe the highlight of their year. Tune in to the next #FringeSpot!
