SALT LAKE CITY (KUTV) - A Harry Potter-themed burlesque drag show is planned to help raise money for a Utah mother who recently underwent a quadruple amputation after a cold eventually turned into sepsis.

According to Angie Jones with Phonix Wing Productions, the company will be putting on the performance at the Utah Arts Alliance on April 20 at 7 p.m. as a way to raise money to purchase prosthetic limbs for Tiffany Fonohema, whose insurance does not cover prosthetics.

Jones says the show will include burlesque dancers, drag queens, and drag kings. Jones describes the Harry Potter-themed performance as “drag show mixed with burlesque."
