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 was a wonderful production in every way. The acting, the directing, the costumes, scenery, lighting, sound effects & music - all were top notch. I especially enjoyed the fact that it was an MFA production and was so well-done. Professional, intensely creative, meaningful. Two young boys sitting in front of us were mesmerized the entire show. Bravo!
The Skin of Our Teeth
by Thornton Wilder
Directed by Sarah Rasmussen
The very underpinnings of American identity are challenged, as a typical family struggles to survive an iceberg, annihilation by coastal flooding, nuclear war and each other.
