Join Performing Arts for a hilarious, surreal look at child pageants

Performing Arts is delving into the world of child beauty pageants with its production of “Pageant Play,” opening this weekend.

Pinky Corningfield will do anything to make sure her little angel wins the ultimate title, Supreme Queen. When Marge, a newcomer to the pageant circuit, shows up and starts grabbing all the glory, Pinky and her minions, Bob and Bobby, use unorthodox methods to ensure her darling, Chevrolet, is victorious. Glitz. Glamour. Kidnapping. Money. Really, really small false teeth.

The play is written by Matthew Wilkas and Mark Setlock, and directed by Paige Tufford. It is intended for mature audiences.

Show times are 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays March 29-30 and April 5-6, and 2 p.m. Sunday, April 7, in the Gannon Building’s Black Box Theatre. The April 6 and 7 performances will be sign interpreted by LCC student interpreters.

Tickets are available at the door for $5 for students and LCC employees, and $10 for the general public. Cash and checks only.
