The “G” Spot, a cabaret where transvestites come for a night of carefree fun, is the home of the singing and dancing star DRAGULA.   Dragula is the stage persona of Peter, a sensitive young man who finds his only true joy in life comes when performing as Dragula. The Right Reverend Bobby Swagger is determined to stop Dragula from spreading his “perverse sexuality”.  Using the horrific Ma Daddy and a special formula provided by Tailgate the lesbian fortuneteller and her herbalist assistants, The Three Bitches, Swagger confronts Dragula.

After much soul searching Peter is determined not to be defeated by the bigotry of narrow-minded prejudice and with the support of his sister and his friends at the club, Peter fights back with honesty and a straightforward defiance to prove once and for all that “It’s all right to be a transvestite.” This laughter-filled, yet theme sensitive musical has the important message that if it’s not hurting anyone, people have the right to live any lifestyle they choose.
