Dragnificent crowns a queen at Heretic

Syraja Sinclair Dupree came out on top at Tuesday night’s Dragnificent finale at Heretic. 

Dupree emerged from a cast of 14, who have been battling it out since July. She took home $2,000 in prize money and an estimated $2,000 in prizes, according to show organizer and judge Phoenix.

“Syraja brought the creativity, the consistency, and the fire to the stage week after week, and tonight was no different,” Phoenix wrote on Facebook following Dupree’s win. “Her ‘judges’ choice’ was from her Broadway challenge of ‘The Color Purple,’ and tonight she had the place on their feet for a standing ovation.”

With only six points separating the finalists, first runner up went to Ivy Fischer, and third place went to Chelsea Daggers.

Celeste Holmes hosted the event series. Trinity Kardashian Bonet and Brigitte Bidet joined Phoenix at the judge’s table.

Congrats, Syraja!
