Dominion Arts Center welcomes the return of Chicks & Waffles! A drag queen’s favorite place is in the spotlight, so it just makes sense to put them on the Carpenter Theatre stage at the Dominion Arts Center. If you’d like to see show-stopping performances and partake in phenomenal brunch fare, join us in the spotlight. This extravaganza, hosted by the live vocal talents of Ellia J. Garlands, is not to be missed. Buy your tickets! Seats will go quickly.
Ellia J. Garlands, a Richmond native, is so excited to be back in the #RVA for Chicks & Waffles drag brunch!! Inspired by Ella Fitzgerald, Etta James & Judy Garland, the classics are her sweet spot.

Other credits include being a featured performer in the New York City Gay Men's Chorus, acting as a lead fundraiser for the Imperial Court of New York, an non-profit LGBT community organization, and being a finalist in the "New York's Next Top Drag Queen" competition. The heels are high, the wigs are styled, and the Garlands-mobile is packed to the brim. Get ready, Richmond. This is a show you won't want to miss!
