Cygnet Theatre Season 12 got off to a rollicking start with the return of audience favorite and off-Broadway hit, Pageant, just in time for summer fun. James Vasquez directed and choreographed this hilarious mash-up of a beauty pageant and a drag musical that let's audience members decide who is crowned the winner. The talented and funny David McBean returned as Miss Deep South and Phil Johnson reprised his role as the wacky master of ceremonies. With Book and Lyrics by Bill Russell (Side Show) and Frank Kelly (The Texas Chainsaw Musical) and Music by Albert Evans, this crowd pleasing romp about beauty contestants ran over the summer.

Pageant, called "screamingly funny" by The New York Times, follows the battle of six beauty contestants who face off to claim the Miss Glamouresse tiara. Who will it be? Miss Bible Belt, Miss Industrial Northwest, Miss Deep South, Miss West Coast, Miss Great Plains, or Miss Texas? Judges picked from the audience nightly determine a different winner at every performance. This fun-filled musical is presided over by zany host extraordinaire Frankie Cavalier. Contestants, all male, compete in several categories including swimsuit, physical fitness, spokesmodel and beauty crisis counseling. This wild and funny satire of beauty contests is fun for all ages. You'll never watch Miss America the same way again.

The cast included Ryan Fahey, Max Gidaley, Luke Harvey Jacobs, Phil Johnson, David McBean, Charles Osborne, and Conor Tibbs. For more information, visit www.cygnettheatre.com.
