Hyde Hall Presents New Different Programs!

Hyde Hall Presents
New Different Programs!

Why is Hyde Hall using a drag show to share history this weekend? The answer is simple: why not?

It’s a little-known fact that historians like to have fun and experiment with ways of sharing the rich past with the public. A piece of Hyde Hall’s mission is to develop inclusive educational programs and events that help diverse audiences explore, appreciate, and understand history. To meet this portion of the mission, the museum has been developing various tours, recreated historic dinners, historic lighting and cocktail programs, folklore and ghost events, musical experiences, and now, a drag show. Hyde Hall in Drag explores nuances of the potency of the human experience and helps outline what happened on northern Otsego Lake over 200 years ago.

With thumping music and flashing lights, Opal Essence, Albany, struts her stuff in front of Granny Bola, Oneonta, and the rest of the crowd who filled My Father’s Place for the second annual Winter Wonderland all ages drag show on Saturday evening. At right, Ryder Knightley, Oneonta, brought his A-game with a bedazzled shirt and pants during his dance performance.  All proceeds from the event go towards the 2019 Pridefest. Their next show is slated for February. (Ian Austin/AllOTSEGO.com)
