Australia, get ready to sashay down the runway of excitement as ITDEVENTS proudly presents the Angels Of The North Tour, starring none other than the Top 3 and Winner of RuPaul’s Drag Race UK Season 5 – Ginger Johnson, Michael Marouli, and Tomara Thomas. Brace yourselves for an electrifying spectacle as this unstoppable trio descends upon your shores, promising a show hotter than a summer day in the Outback!
Leading the charge is none other than the reigning queen herself, Ginger Johnson. Born Donald Marshall in the late 1980s in the quaint town of Lanchester, County Durham, Ginger embraced the art of drag in the late 2000s. She swiftly became a powerhouse in the scene, joining Sink the Pink in 2014 and not only dazzling audiences with performances but also showcasing diverse talents by writing, directing, and co-producing theatrical productions like "Down the Rabbit Hole" and "The Queen's Head" for Selfridges.
In 2023, Ginger Johnson soared to fame as the winner of RuPaul's Drag Race UK Season 5, leaving an indelible mark with her whimsical and campy style. Describing herself as "a helium balloon in the shape of a woman," Ginger's infectious charm and quick wit endeared her to fans and judges alike. From conquering local stages in County Durham to becoming The UK's Next Drag Superstar, Ginger Johnson's rise is a testament to her talent and magnetic presence in the world of drag.
Joining her are the Northern Sisters – the incomparable Michael Marouli, a seasoned British drag performer captivating audiences for over 15 years. Hailing from Newcastle upon Tyne, Michael discovered her passion for drag at the age of 22 and has since become a fixture in the drag scene. Known for her Geordie flavor, she has graced the stages of Gran Canaria as a cabaret performer and emerged victorious in Drag Idol Newcastle.
Beyond the cabaret circuit, Michael showcased her talents on The X Factor before landing a coveted spot on the highly competitive stage of RuPaul's Drag Race UK, Season 5. Despite being a runner-up to Ginger Johnson, Michael's charisma, uniqueness, nerve, and talent have solidified her status as a beloved figure in the drag community.
In her personal life, Michael Marouli, who uses she/her pronouns in drag and he/him out of drag, proudly identifies as a British-Spanish drag performer. With a fondness for Alaska and a passion for lip-sync battles, Michael brings a wealth of experience, humour, and authenticity to the world of drag, proving that age is no barrier to slaying the runway.
Completing the trio is Tomara Thomas, the dazzling stage persona of Tom Adams, a prominent British drag performer whose journey began at the young age of 14. Inspired and guided by a supportive dance teacher, Adams embarked on a path that led him to adopt the captivating identity of Tomara Thomas. Hailing from Hartlepool, Adams initially pursued musical theatre at Manor College before delving into a successful career as a professional dancer, even gracing the stages of cruise ships.
In an exciting turn of events, Tomara Thomas became a part of a sensational drag trio that performed as the Interval Act during the semi-finals of the Eurovision Song Contest in 2023. Further showcasing her talent and charisma, Tomara Thomas entered the spotlight as a contestant on the fifth season of RuPaul's Drag Race UK. Her memorable impersonation of Robin Williams as Mrs. Doubtfire in the Snatch Game challenge and her top three finalist position solidified her status as a force to be reckoned with in the drag world.
On a personal note, Tomara Thomas returned to her roots in Hartlepool after the challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic. With a captivating blend of humour, style, and talent, Tomara Thomas has become a standout figure in the vibrant world of drag, leaving an indelible mark on stages worldwide.
