Drag Queen Storytime

An entertaining hour featuring The Glamoure Family singing, reading and posing for photos. An interactive experience for children of all ages and worth the trip for adults as well! All proceeds are split between The Center and the performing artists.

Drag King Storytime

Introduced to Second Star by our long-time favorite Drag Queen, The Glamoure Family, we are proud to present the Mile High Kingdom, Denver's first Drag King storytime. The Kings put on a performance that's not to be missed including choreographed singing and dancing numbers, solo songs, crowd participation acts and, of course, time for a story or two. Join us in welcoming the Mile High Kingdom to our regularly featured events!

Dancing Princesses Storytime

Dancing Princess LLC hosted some of our most popular storytimes at our original Tennyson location. We're so excited to be bringing them along to our new location on South Pearl Street - where all children are invited to dress up in their most royal garb and dance along!
