There was no shortage of material for this year’s Halloween Magic extravaganza, the world-premiering RandPaul’s Drag Race: Destination 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. It imagines the 2016 United States presidential election as a beauty contest between, among others, “Donatella Trump” and “Bernadette Sanders.” When terrorists plot to incite mayhem at the pageant site, Charlie’s Angels Bill Clinton, Melania Trump and Sarah Palin swoop in to try to save the day. “Halloween Magic likes to take things and twist them. This year, we didn’t have to because things are already twisted,” says Dennis Draper, director of operations and events for the Alley Theatre, who’s directing the annual fund-raiser benefiting Houston-area HIV/AIDS service organizations. Because of the never-ending nonsense between the real-life presidential candidates, they’ve had to rewrite the script several times for this 25th-anniversary edition.

4 p.m. Sunday. Resurrection Metropolitan Community Church Gymnasium, 2025 West 11th. For information, call 713-526-3880 or visit halloweenmagic.org. $50.
