Manoa Valley Theatre is proud to launch its 50th anniversary play season with a hilarious Off-Broadway musical comedy by Bill Russell, Frank Kelly, Albert Evans and Robert Longbottom where “beauty is in the eye of the ticket holder!” Pageant is a female beauty pageant performed by an all-male cast. Complete with evening gowns, talent, swimwear and spokes modeling...plus answering calls from the Glamouresse Beauty Crisis Hotline, six contestants eagerly compete for the title of Miss Glamouresse (a cosmetics company): Miss Deep South, Miss West Coast, Miss Great Plains, Miss Bible Belt, Miss Industrial Northeast and Miss Texas. Judges selected from the audience vote and determine nightly who the winner will be at each performance.
The production will run August 30 – September 26. Show times are Wed. 7:30 p.m., Thur. 7:30 p.m., Fri. 8 p.m., Sat. 8 p.m., and Sun. 4 p.m. Doors will open for seating one hour prior to each performance. Food and drinks will be available for purchase on site. No outside food or drinks are allowed. Tickets are $40. Seniors and military are admitted for $35, youth 25 years old and younger are $22. Minimum age is 10. Call 988-6131 or purchase tickets online at manoavalleytheatre.com. The play is performed in two acts with one intermission.
