Synopsis: Little Miss Glitz sets the questionable beauty standards and parenting practices of child beauty pageants to music in a high-energy musical with a twist: there is no scripted winner. Each night, a panel of judges pulled from the audience will determine who wins, leaving the cast to improvise the end of the show.
Adding to this element of surprise is a heartwarming story of Isabella Connor, a frumpy and impressionable 7-year-old, as she navigates through the world of child beauty pageants. While at first pageants seem like a fun way to dress up, have fun and get a foot in the door of stardom, Isabella soon discovers that the cutthroat world of pageants takes no prisoners. You have to fight to survive.
Requires: 3 female- and 1 male-identified actors for the following roles
Note: To enhance the satire of the show, all parts, including those written for children, will be played by adults.
Isabella Connor (F) – A frumpy, impressionable and unseasoned 7-year-old who dreams of becoming a star, but doesn’t quite have the ingredients to get there.
Jaylene Darlene (F) – A highly competitive 6-year-old with an A-type personality. She is the most competitive child-contestant and wants to win at any cost.
Carol Wood (F) – A sickingly sweet and terminally delightful self-proclaimed “pageant mom” and mother of Sparkle.
Stefan St. Claire (M) – A snooty and flamboyant 30-year-old pageant consultant who is hired by Jaylene to help her win.
Submission Deadline: September 15, 2017. To submit for an audition, please send your headshot and resume to Alan Pronger at firstname.lastname@example.org.
