Iman DeMarco was born and raised in a small town in Texas which is where she was introduced to the beautiful art of female impersonation. Iman started this career as a female impersonator because of her love of entertainment and passion to put a smile on others and she continues so today. She is the matriarch of the Haus of DeMarco and the drag mother and mentor to two up and coming drag queens in the Northwest Arkansas region. She has grown to love giving to others and she does her best to lead by example, humbleness, being a positive influence and role model.
Iman was just crowned Miss Gay Arkansas America 2019 in August! This will be the second year for Iman in the Follies.

Maddy Morphosis, Arkansas’ most beautiful camp/comedy queen is excited to make her Follies debut.
She started drag right here in NWA almost 3 years ago and was the season 1 winner of “Drag-It-Out” at Triniti Nightclub, and was a top-12 finalist at this year’s Miss Gay USofA Newcomer national pageant.
Maddy was always enamored by the art of drag. But after a while of going to the shows, she started exploring more in the drag scene. As Ghandi once said, “Be the change you wish to see in the world...” so she threw on a pair of pumps and some lashes and TURNED IT OUT. She is here to entertain you, make you laugh, and possibly question your sexuality. She is Maddy Morphosis!

The Follies welcomes back for his second year, O'Shea Reed. Born and raised in Bentonville, O'Shea has been preforming for two years all over Arkansas. The reason why he loves preforming is the ability to put a smile on his audience's face, because to him, that is the greatest reward he could ever receive. O'Shea believes, "The more you give, the more you get in. The more you get, the more you have to give back." -Brandon Holts, BHS Band Director. This was a quote that continues inspires him, not just in his daily life, but with each performance.

Making her Follies debut this year, Ella Rosa DeMarco is 23 years old and recently graduated from the University of Arkansas where she is now employed.
Ella has been performing for the past year and a half and truly enjoys it. She would say that her drag is a combination of a lot of different things. She doesn't believe people always know what she’ll be delivering to them and that’s mostly because half of the time she doesn't either. Drag has given her the ability to explore her creativity, her latin culture and has also allowed her to embrace her femininity.
