The folks at Fiesta Cornyation are busy preparing to officially introduce this year’s King Anchovy LIV, Mindy Miller Hill, at a February 22 soiree themed “Cheap and Raunchy Romans.”
While the King’s Coming Out Party is the first official appearance by King Anchovy, Hill’s name was leaked last October during the 80th birthday party for Cornyation founder Ray Chavez. A post on the Fiesta Cornyation Facebook page announced “Happy birthday to our fearless leader Ray Chavez and congratulations to King Anchovy LIV Mindy Miller Hill!”
Hill will preside over six performances of Cornyation, billed as “the raunchiest, cheapest event of Fiesta.” The shows will take the stage from April 23 to 25, 2019 at the Charlene McCombs Empire Theatre.
The party will help Cornyation raise funds for it’s charities, which in the past have included the San Antonio AIDS Foundation, BEAT AIDS and the Thrive Youth Center for homeless LGBT youth. Cornyation also awards Robert Rehm scholarships to college students pursuing degrees in theater arts-related fields.
Those attending the King’s Coming Out Party will be treated to an open bar, food, music, entertainment and be able to rub elbows with past Cornyation royalty. Attendees are encouraged to wear a costume in keeping with the party’s theme.
