Lord a-mercy: it’s the evening of the eighth bi-annual Miss Hogwalla County Beauty Pageant, and our heroine, Grenadine McGunkle (Dorian Rush), is a nervous wreck. She needs to bring her A-game if she’s going to snatch victory from the jaws of her ruthless cousins/step-sisters, Crystal and China Pitts (Lisa Picone, Ashley Ricord Santos) and the musically unmatchable mailman Johnny Shoemake (Bob Edes Jr.), but the poor woman hasn’t even had time to plug in her curling iron. And as if she weren’t under enough pressure, rumors are a-swirling that her idol, Paula Deen, will be one of the judges!
Can gal-pals Gladys Finkelstein (Brooklyn Shaffer) and Madge McGillicuddy (Elizabeth Pearce) keep Grenadine cool as a cucumber? Will pageant president Ronald Dump and his assistant, Elmer (Kyle Daigrepont, Patrick Flynn), ever stop belly-achin’? Will Madge’s ukulele-totin’ daughters (The Kentucky Sisters) recover from their stint in the world’s first cruelty-free circus? And what are the fire code regulations for flaming batons in a trailer park, anyway?
