Tonight’s Host and Emcee Lola Lovacious
Lola LaVacious is a multifaceted fixture in the Indianapolis community. She is a performer, singer, director, producer, emcee, and creative gal Friday. She’s been a director for “Girl Pride” at The Vogue, hosted RAW: Natural Born Artists at the Egyptian Room, and directed and produced full-length burlesque shows with Angel Burlesque, her own burlesque show, and currently produces a new benefit series, Righteous Rager. Last summer Lola was the artistic director for the Fringe premier of “Small Gods, Big Problems,” assisted this last season with makeup for Westfield’s Dracula, Of Mice and Men, and this summer for Frozen Jr in Noblesville. Lola will also be performing in Arts for Lawrence showcase, and then switching gears with comedy and singing with Pink Slip Comedy in this year’s production of “Don We Now Our Gay Apparel” Dec 21st and 22nd at White Rabbit Cabaret. When not busy she enjoys co-working with her fellow creatives at local coffeeshops, writing dumb jokes, and making elite music playlists. Lola was recently featured as Lucy in Southbank’s production of The Profession.
