It's 1985 and we're in Santa Rosa, California, at the Young American Miss Pageant. Nerves are high as the experienced as well as the inexperienced hopefuls attempt to win over the judges with their talent, poise, and -- what else -- their oh so natural smiles. Former contestant Brenda hopes to relive her almost-glory days running the pageant this year along with her husband Big Bob, the local RV dealer. True to form, the show features singing, dancing, showmanship, and no small amount of gossip, drama, and backstabbing. Written by Howard Ashman (Little Shop of Horrors, Little Mermaid) and Marvin Hamlisch (A Chorus Line), this is a hilarious feel-good musical about coming-of-age and self-realization amid the frenzy of the pageant circuit.
