City Theatre presents PAGEANT THE MUSICAL

Let the beauty begin! This musical comedy favorite is a side-splitting roller coaster ride through the wildest beauty pageant you will ever see as six contestants compete for the glittering tiara and the title of Miss Glamouresse. With swimsuit, talent, and evening gown competitions – the show includes both the thrill of victory and the agony of defeat for Miss Deep South, Miss West Coast, Miss Great Plains, Miss Bible Belt, Miss Industrial Northeast and Miss Texas. And, of course, unlike beauty pageants you’ve seen before, the female contestants are all played by MEN. AND THE WINNER IS? It’s up to you! The audience gets to select who gets the crown each night. These competing “ladies” take you where no beauty pageant has ever taken you before. It’s a night of sashes and sashays, queens and comedy, that you won’t soon forget.

Pageant The Musical stars Rick Felkins, James Springer, Boyce Templin, Michael Wheeler, Jalal Goggins, James Monreal, and Kirk Kelso. Directed by Jim Lindsay, musical direction by Rachel Hoovler, and choreography by Laura Lund and Jim Lindsay. Written by two-time Tony nominee Bill Russell (“Side Show”) and Frank Kelly, the show’s original Off-Broadway incarnation debuted in 1991 at the Blue Angel in New York.
