Director/Choreographer: Dawn Ewen
Music Director: Stewart Yu

Requires: 9 women and 3 men 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 – A frumpy, impressionable and unseasoned 7 year old who dreams of becoming a star, but doesn’t quite have the ingredients to get there.
  • Cliff Connor – An older, well meaning, blue-collar “every man” and father of Isabella.
    Sparkle America – A plump and awkward 7 year old who is clueless on stage and needs constant reminders on how to perform.
  • Carol Wood – A sickingly sweet and terminally delightful self-proclaimed “pageant mom” and mother of Sparkle.
  • Jaylene Darlene – A highly competitive 6 year old with an A-type personality. She is the most competitive contestant and wants to win at any cost.
  • Franny Darlene – The shy and reserved mother of Jaylene. Being used to living in the shadows, Franny allows everyone, including her overly competitive daughter, to walk all over her.
  • Stefan St. Claire – A snooty and flamboyant 30-year-old pageant consultant who is hired by Jaylene to help her win.
  • Heather Butterfry – A pretty and vain 6 year old, who is considered a “big deal” in the pageant world, especially by herself.
  • Hillary Butterfry – The pushy and overwhelmingly competitive mother of Heather. Hillary is a redneck at heart, and puts her daughter into pageants as a way to feel more high class. In short, Hillary is a bitch.
  • Mackenzie Ziploc – A spoiled and self-obsessed 8 year old who may have a substance abuse issue with sugar.
  • Rose Ziploc – A rich and shallow trophy wife and mother of Mackenzie. Rose thinks she is a “cool mom” and spoils her daughter, giving her whatever she wants.
  • Peter Phyle – The eager to please President and MC of the pageant, with a deviant smile and a cloudy, if not troubling, history with young girls. Peter always walks the line between the questionable and the inappropriate.
