Beth Henley, the Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright of Crimes of the Heart, serves up another of her fine Southern-fried comedies. This funny and heartfelt play focuses on Carnelle Scott, a pageant hopeful with a large and dysfunctional family, who believes that winning the Miss Firecracker Contest will restore her reputation and vastly improve her life. But her path to the crown and sash becomes complicated when a cousin, a former Miss Firecracker winner, arrives unexpectedly. San Diego Theatre Critics Circle award-winner Samantha Ginn takes on the title role. Learn More

This is the 4th time I have seen this wonderful Holiday Tale. And We really enjoyed it. First time in this theatre and seeing this actor. Was not a disappointed. Plus we got to shop the Carlsbad Outlet Mall for a few hours before the show.
Quotes & Highlights
“Scott’s droll timing, his accents and an especially good Billie Holiday impersonation (a scatting arrangement of “Away in a Manger”) endear him to the audience. And for all its sharp satire, Sedaris’ writing has a basic, middle-of-the road decency and sweetness that suit Scott’s own persona." —North County Times
“Scott, an ebullient performer with a huge expressive vocabulary, gets his imp on as Crumpet in plenty of entertaining ways” —Union Tribune
