Feeling Fracking exhausted by the state of the world?

Tonight’s performance is canceled due in part to climate change. We’ll be back at the rink tomorrow. Tickets for the 2/16 performance will be honored at any remaining performances. If you cannot attend any of these dates, please reach out to info@drwc.org for more information.

Are you feeling a little on edge these days? Polar vortexes and increasingly violent storms got you down? Come release (your anxiety) with the Bearded Ladies Cabaret as they hit the ice at Independence Blue Cross RiverRink Winterfest for a show that’s cool to the touch but hot to its core. Expect bracing comedy, wild camp, sultry costumes, wintry spectacle, and the world’s last polar bear. Beards On Ice comes in two flavors: Beards on Ice: Edging and the kid-friendly Family Skate. Same great themes, different flavors of edginess.

Both hour-long shows end with a free skate perfect for all skill levels. Hosted by Jarbeaux and featuring local drag superstars with varying levels of skating experience, including Bren Thomas, Messapotamia Lefae, MK Tuomanen, Veronica-Chapman Smith, and professional skater Michael Solonoski.  Catch this iceberg of a performance before it melts away.

In partnership with the Delaware River Waterfront
