AUDITIONS taking place MONDAY!!! April 22nd 7 PM!!
The Miss Firecracker Contest 🎉
The place is the small Mississippi town of Brookhaven, the time a few days before the Fourth of July. Carnelle Scott (known locally as Miss Hot Tamale) is rehearsing furiously 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, who has walked out on her rich but boring husband and her two small children, complicates matters a bit, as does the repeated threat of Elains eccentric brother, Delmount, recently released from a mental institution, to sell the family homestead and decamp for New Orleans. But, aided by a touchingly awkward seamstress named Popeye, who is hopelessly smitten by Delmount, and several other cheerfully nutty characters, Carnelle perseveres …leading to a denouement of unparalleled hilarity, compassion and moving lyricism as all concerned finally escape their unhappy pasts and turn hopefully toward what must surely be a better future.
