SATURDAY, December 21st at 8:30pm
Lord a-mercy, y'all: it's the evening of the eighth bi-annual Miss
Hogwalla County Beauty and Talent Pageant, and our heroine,
Grenadine McGunkle (Dorian Rush), is a nervous wreck. She needs
to bring her A-game if she's going to snatch victory from the jaws
of her ruthless cousins/step-sisters, Crystal and China Pitts (Lisa
Picone and Ashley Ricord Santos) and the musically unmatchable
mailman Johnny Shoemake (Bob Edes Jr.), but the poor woman
hasn't even had time to plug in her curling iron. And as if she weren't
under enough pressure, rumors are now swirling that her idol, Paula
Deen, is going to be one of the judges! Can glamorous gal-pal, Gladys
Finkelstein (Brooklyn Shaffer), keep Grenadine cool as a cucumber?
Will there be enough food for the post-pageant party? What are the
fire code regulations for flaming batons in a trailer park, anyway? Find
out this December as Running With Scissors makes a mad dash for
musical merriment at Mid-City Theatre! Also featuring Kyle Daigrepont
and Patrick Flynn.
