The Miss Firecracker Contest

A Comedy/Drama

By Beth Henley

Playing February 11–28, 2016

Directed by Julia Traber

Carnelle Scott (known locally in the small Mississippi town of Brookhaven 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, complicates matters, as does the repeated threat of Elain's eccentric brother, Delmount, (recently released from a mental institution) to sell the family homestead and decamp for New Orleans. Aided by a touchingly awkward seamstress named Popeye (who is hopelessly smitten with Delmount) and other cheerfully nutty characters, will Carnelle persevere?

Rated PG-13 for mature language and content.
