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

Homer lives in this terrific production! He and his muse (an extraordinary bassist Brian Ellingsen) enact the most compelling scenes of the ILLIAD. They together recount the chapters of the Trojan War and live the warrior spirit down through the centuries. Actor Henry Woronicz in every clearly articulated word and every dramatic gesture captivates the audience and makes ancient themes reverberate through the millennia.
