Meet the Season 4 Campers
The they/them mayhem... Clinica Deprecious is the bendy, theatrical, alarmingly high energy goofball absurdist with a bone to pick with gender. Weaving their nonbinary nature into their art, Clinica’s range extends to traditional queen drag, king drag, and whatever else they’re feeling that day. Beyond drag, Clinica dabbles in digital art, burlesque, script writing, cosplay, voice acting, and being a got-dang cave goblin.
Celebrating life as an individual on the autism spectrum, Clinica passionately believes that nobody should be kept out of being able to succeed and/or express themselves through the most personal art form in the world. With a head full of art and hot air, Clinica is ready to play the game and come out as number one... on either Camp Wannakiki Season 4 or the FBI’s most wanted.
Coco Sho-Nell was born in a small town outside of Gary, Indiana. And that town was called Chicago! Coco has been in existence for 13 years but as a theatre actor she has been performing for over 20 years. Known for stunning looks, tight lip-syncs and Dad-Jokes, Coco is a theatre camp queen through and through.
Coco has worked with some great Theatre companies in the Chicagoland area such as Theo Ubique, Fox Valley Repetory, Northlight, Red Tape Theatre and Hell in a Handbag Productions (just to names a few). Most recently Coco was named runner up as Chicago reader’s best drag entertainer of 2020 and was named the grand Marshall for the Buffalo Grove pride parade in 2022.
Coleslaw is a multi-media artist, performer and DJ who has been producing drag shows and nightlife events in the Boston area since 2011. Her goofy personality mixes camp and self-deprecating charm to bring you a one-of-a-kind experience. She brings a bright, colorful, sassy, and rough around the edges aesthetic. Her goal has always been to create inclusive environments where the audience leaves with a smile on their face.
Coleslaw’s ongoing award winning collaboration at the Museum of Science Boston (“Coleslaw’s Corner”) has captivated audiences for the past 4 years. Coleslaw has current DJ residencies at Legacy Nightclub in Boston and The Stable in Providence, RI.
Deja D. Dellataro
The skinny legend has arrived! Hailing from the great metropolis of Toledo, OH, Deja D. Dellataro (or just “Deja D” for short) took the short cut on the Oregon Trail where she got dysentery only once.
Deja has been a female illusionist for 20+ years. She has been on many stages and has traveled around the US with her witty personality and innovative stage performances. The 3D lady has competed in many drag pageants including Miss Gay USofA and Miss National Entertainer of the Year. She is a former radio host and is a student of “Glass City Improv” in her hometown. Deja is a cast member at Hamburger Mary’s Ypsilanti and Georgjz 419 in Toledo, Ohio where she serves as host and emcee. Deja’s style of drag is in your face, loud, diverse, unapologetic and filled with carbs and gluten.
You can top her with butter because she spreads. It’s Flap Jack – the kooky campy comedy queen of Birmingham, and reigning Mx. Central Alabama Pride! Relatively new to drag, most of Flap Jack’s drag career has been during the Covid pandemic. The self-proclaimed Miss Quarantine Comedy Queen is a talented writer and costume designer.
Flap Jack is the show director at the Upside Down Drag Revue and always brings a concept to the stage. Flap Jack is a co-host for the podcast Flapping and Fawning and has also made appearances in local theatre performances.
Hillary Yaas is a stand up, sketch and improv comedienne in a wig. She mixes glamour with camp, but rarely at the same time – and is also her own secretary. A tireless self-producer, she has created many LGBTQ+ improv, sketch and comedy shows. She also co-hosts and helps to produce the award-winning “Squirrel Talk” podcast (Canadian Podcast Awards 2021 Best Film & TV Podcast) and is even an award-winning web-series creator (“Catching Up with the Kovid’s” – NYC Web Fest Quarantine Creative Award 2020). Did we mention that she’s from Canada? She is, and proud of it!
She is beyond honoured (noticed the Canadian spelling) to be the first Canadianonian on Camp Wannakiki, and is camping on guard for thee!
Lili St. Queer
Lili St. Queer is a multi-talented force... A jack-off all trades! A triple threat of looks, body, and looks! She’s known the world over — from North Philadelphia to South Philadelphia — as an economy-class drag queen, musician, cabaret & theatre artist, comedian, educator, and DJ.
Lili is a co-founder of Jaffe St. Queer Productions, which produced a series of Broadway parodies including “Gay Miz” and “The Lizard of Oz,” and their partnership with the Penn Museum created the original musical “Eric & Lili’s Night at the Museum.” Their cabaret duo Glitter & Garbage won Philly Magazine’s Best Cabaret Act 2019, and they were named “Best Flirt 2022” by your dad. Lili is also the prettiest cast member in their recurring one-woman show “Cabaret Sauvignon.”
Opal Essence is a 24-year-old Drag Muppet. She is a glamp queen who loves being fun and kooky but also wants to serve you looks that make you want more. Opal loves to perform Broadway and chart wheeling, and is known for her glampy positive style and dumb humor.
Opal loves to sing live and is an accomplished wig stylist for Essence Wigs, where she has worked with some of the biggest names in Drag. Opal is also a successful show producer at Waterworks Pub, Rocks Nightclub, Bard and Baker Cafe!
“How You Blueaaahhhhh!?!?!”
They call her Miss “BIG, Blue & Beautiful.” Pola Frost has been in the drag game for over 15 years, with her 80’s vibe, Crocs and ombre glitter brows. She is a true camp queen... as her home bar has always been gay campgrounds in PA. Her goal is to make you laugh, and offer you a something a little different and definitely unexpected!! She is a cast member of Diva’s Down Under, the largest drag show in central PA. Proud title holder of Miss Woods All Stars and Miss North East Comedy Queen emeritus. She also hosts a very popular trivia show “Trivia with Pola.”
In recent years Pola has discovered her love for cosplay and character drag... portraying characters like Krampus, Bette Midler, Batgirl, Cindy Lou Who, Evil Lynn, Adele and the Tiger King, the Tiger & Miss Baskins (if you’re Nasty!). She is also obsessed with headware, she has recently started her “Chap-Pola” hat, horn and foam wig business.
Vincent Milay is the spooky suave Gothfather of Seattle. He is a graduate of PCPA-Pacific Conservatory Theatre in California, and is an avid actor and performance artist, and was named Seattle’s Drag King of the Year in 2020.
Vincent was a cast member of the long-running drag brunch Mimosa’s Cabaret, and was on the 2019 tour as Damien in the production of “Mean Gays” by Peaches Christ (which also featured Kim Chi, Laganja Estranja and Willam).
Beyond the spooky exterior Vincent definitely has a softer side. A former vet tech, he loves fostering animals, the great outdoors and gardening.
Hellooooo, campers! Big and bawdy and awfully naughty... it's Camp Counselor Ruthie! Often described as a cross between Bette Midler and Carol Burnett, Ruthie's kooky nature and 20+ year experience in the drag biz make her a natural for breaking in a new generation of camp queens.
Part actress, part stand-up comedian and part bear-chaser, Ruthie hass appeared in nearly every Charles Busch play ever written, made thousands of people giggle in clubs, bars and drag shows, and currently hosts a large family of crabs in her pantyhose. A Joan Rivers impersonator, frenzied cook and humor writer, her advice column, Dear Ruthie, has appeared in numerous publications over the last few decades. Yes... we said “decades.”
The Sugarbaker Twins
Camp Directors Apple Brown Betty and Cherry Pi Sugarbaker like to think they run a tight ship, but let's face it... there's nothing tight at Camp Wannakiki.
Originally from Atlanta, GA, the Sugarbakers first came to life in Washington, DC, where Betty was managing a popular nightclub and hosting her weekly Gong Show Karaoke. When Cherry Pi would visit, she'd play the part of the drunk sidekick (a little too well, if you know what we mean). They eventually made their way to Chicago, where they opened up a Hamburger Mary's franchise and eventually took over the brand nationally.
The real life twin brothers (Ashley & Brandon Wright) are also co-owners of Hamburger Mary's International, and were recently featured on the hit CBS show, Undercover Boss. Going on 20 locations, Mary's is known not only for their gourmet burgers, but also for putting on great drag shows across the country. The Wright brothers are the creators and producers of Camp Wannakiki.
