You be the Judge. No really...You might be the Judge and choose the Winner!!!
This One Act, 90 minute musical, boldly pits six contestants-all played by male-identifying actors-in pursuit of the tiara and title, chosen by celebrity Judges culled from the audience! The show's cross-gender casting amplifies and satirizes the American notion of beauty Pageants and this Pageant is like nothing you've seen before! Sure: there's swimsuit, talent, and evening gown competitions and a third string Love-Boat-esque Host-but it's a cheeky peek into what it is we never wanted to see in beauty contests.
Featuring Kelly-Ruth Mercier, Graeme Thompson, Max Hall, Simon Paterson, Javier Ricardo Sotres Porres, Kenneth Tynan, Ryan Purdy, Derry Oshust
