Photo Coverage: PAGEANT Opens at Theatre Tulsa
PAGEANT: THE MUSICAL's beauty queens have it all, and as emcee Frankie Cavalier (local actor, Patrick Hobbs) puts it, there's also "something extra" in this production of the farcical Off-Broadway hit that's a send up of beauty Pageants - and it's a musical!
PAGEANT: THE MUSICAL's beauty queens have it all, and as emcee Frankie Cavalier (local actor, Patrick Hobbs) puts it, there's also "something extra" in this production of the farcical Off-Broadway hit that's a send up of beauty Pageants - and it's a musical. BroadwayWorld was on hand for the Theatre Tulsa opening and brings you photo coverage below
Pageant pits six beauty queens against each other in the Glamouresse annual extravaganza. These beauties will sing, dance, and camp it up in gowns and bathing suits. A hilarious contest that is equaled only by the zany "spokesmodel" event that requires them to hawk the sponsor's outrageous cosmetics. While the girls swirl around the charming host, judges from the audience will decide who will be crowned Miss Glamouresse.
Miss Deep South, Miss Bible Belt, Miss Industrial Northeast, Miss Great Plains, Miss Texas and
Miss West Coast, will take the stage and steal your hearts while competing for the crown and the
title of "Miss Glamouresse" at the Doenges Theatre beginning on September 17. And the winner
is? Well, that's up to you, because the audience decides every night in the Tulsa premier of this
hilarious, over-the-top spoof.
Called "screamingly funny!" by the New York Times, Pageant is a beauty contest unlike any
All shows are at 7:30, except the 2:00 p.m. Matinee on September 19. Tickets are $16, Seniors $11 and Season Tickets $60.
