The Dumpsta Players

From 2004 until 2016, I was a member of the Dumpsta Players, a Philadelphia based drag and performance art group. We performed original 30-45 scripted shows using pop songs as the musical numbers to tell a unique queer story on a monthly or bi-monthly basis. This is where I created my character, Amanda Playwythe. It was a name I chose last minute before taking the stage in the annual Prom Trash competition, the search for the trashiest prom queen! Over the course of my time as a member of the Dumspta Players I went on to win this competition more than anyone else in the history of the event! For more info and pics of the Dumpsta Players go here!

Check out this playlist to see sample of my work with the Dumpsta Players as well as some of my favorite pictures. I’ve collected these over the years on multiple devices so I may have lost track of who took certain pictures. Please contact me and I’ll make sure to give credit where needed.
