Performance Notes

× If there’s one thing that has never changed in the small New England town of Old Weston, it’s the town’s steep sense of tradition. Take, for example, the Old Weston Civics Club’s annual beauty pageant: a cornerstone of local history where a select few young women compete for the coveted crown - and cash prizes. This year’s contestants are shaping up to be the most beautiful and talented yet: from the leggy ventriloquist to the magician with the Colgate smile. That is, until the Civics Club is forced to admit a new contestant into the mix – a young and very determined man – or else be served with a hefty lawsuit. Just when the Club’s Board of Directors – a true “old boys” network – thinks things can’t get much worse, another discrimination allegation looms lest they admit one final contestant: an octogenarian widow who refuses to suffer “whippersnappers” gladly. Despite tradition being cast to the wind and the entire town being sent into a tailspin, the beauty pageant forges ahead – with surprising and epic disasters around every turn. By the time the police arrive, there’s only one thing the contestants can do: put petty differences aside and join forces (and talents) to save face – and save the day.
