Farewell performance Curtain Call drags in money

IT WAS the glitz and glam of Gladstone.

More than 200 people turned out at Clinton State School to see Curtain Call - a farewell performance from local young talent.

In between singing and dancing, star of the show and organiser Sam Thompson captivated audiences with dazzling drag performances.

Sam took the stage in the first act with a number of dialogues with other local performers.

The second act became a little more glamorous with a stronger focus on drag.

There were countless costume changes throughout the night but his Marilyn Monroe rendition was a big hit and favourite among the crowd.

Other acts included acoustic performances, drama monologues and dance.

Thirty per cent of money raised from ticket sales will go towards flood victims.

Sam, who recently graduated from Gladstone State High School, will leave town later this month to head to Victoria to study a three-year degree in fine arts in musical theatre.
