The Stranger Things kids can’t be taken anywhere, at least not without outshining everyone in attendance.
For Labor Day, actors Gaten Matarazzo and Caleb McLaughlin — who play Dustin and Lucas in the hit sci-fi series, respectively — showed off some of their other skills while at Elsie Fest. Hosted on New York’s Coney Island, the one-day outdoor event is a celebration of music and the arts.
Glee‘s Darren Criss created the event last year and was in fine form this year. Joining him and the Stranger Things breakouts was Tony-nominated actress Megan Hilty; Tituss Burgess of Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt; Hedwig and the Angry Inch star Lena Hall; RuPaul’s All Stars Drag Race judge and star of the upcoming Kinky Boots Todrick Hall; and Corey Cott of Newsies.
Held at the Ford Amphitheater, the celebrities in attendance sang their favorite show tunes and also took part in meet-and-greets with fans.
Check out a few performances uploaded to YouTube (including a great cover of “I Just Can’t Wait to be King” by Darren, Caleb, and Caleb’s younger sister!), as well as some posts from the stars’ Instagram pages.
