Drag queens read stories for kids

Storytelling with drag queens


Director and producer Petter Wallenberg‘s acclaimed show Bland drakar och dragqueens (Amongst Dragons and Drag Queens) features a cast of well known Swedish drag queens reading fairy tales to children.


“I wish there was something like this when I was little,” says Petter Wallenberg. ”This is a colorful way to show children that it’s okay to be different.”


The show premiered at the Stockholm Public Library and received coverage in some of Sweden’s biggest media, including the front page of newspaper DN and a feature on TV4. The opening season’s tickets were fully booked within hours, resulting in a tour across Sweden. We are currently looking at developing future seasons.
