Kiersey will be playing Jules, “an aspiring drag king who comes to Las Vegas to reconnect with her estranged dad Mick (Shannon), and to make her debut performance in America’s big-gest drag king revue.

Mick, a legendary gambler and part-time children’s party clown, is less than excited to see his daughter ‘Julia’ presenting as masculine, wearing suits and chasing after Ronnie (Ferreira), the no-nonsense dancer who he frequents regularly. During an unforgettable whirlwind week-end, Jules and Mick’s worlds collide.”

The film is set in 1990s Las Vegas and will begin production in early 2023 in Vegas.

Justin Tranter, who recently worked on music with Sofia Carson for Purple Hearts, will serve as executive music producer and create original music for the upcoming movie. Larin Sullivan wrote the script and will make her directorial debut.

If you didn’t know, Kiersey will also be voicing a character in an upcoming Freeform animated series.
