Little Miss Glitz is an over-the-top musical parody of child beauty pageants, now new and improved with original music written locally by Christopher King. Dust off those tiaras, get your spray tans on and practice those cupcake hands because this show is going to be off the hook!
The show 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.
Shocking, sassy, and uncompromisingly funny, Little Miss Glitz questions modern society’s obsession with a person’s looks to uncover the beauty within. Coupled with Dawn Ewen’s fearless direction and show-stopping choreography, Little Miss Glitz promises to take you on a musical adventure like you’ve never seen before.
