THE MISS FIRECRACKER CONTEST
By Beth Henley
Friday, February 10, 2017 - Sunday, March 5, 201
For Carnelle Scott, everything rests on winning the local beauty pageant and being crowned “Miss Firecracker.” With a host of oddball characters by her side, Carnelle embarks on what is a coming-of-age story full of amusement, hardship, and an inspired re-imagining of the “Star Spangled Banner.” From playwright Beth Henley, the award-winning writer of Crimes of the Heart comes a small town southern comedy with a whole lot of heart.
