Program

The Miss Firecracker Contest is Beth Henley’s story of one small Mississippi town’s biggest annual celebration: the 4th of July Festival and beauty pageant. Carnelle Scott is feverishly rehearsing her patriotic tap dance for the Miss Firecracker Contest—hoping that a victory will salvage her tarnished reputation and allow her to leave town in a blaze of glory. The unexpected arrival of her cousin Elain, a former Miss Firecracker winner, complicates matters, as does Elain’s eccentric brother, Delmount. But, aided by an awkward seamstress named Popeye and several other cheerfully nutty characters, Carnelle’s efforts culminate in a firework-worthy finish.

Cost

$25
