Delta Drama Miss Firecracker

THE MISS FIRECRACKER CONTEST
By Beth Henley

Directed by Greg Foro

The place is the small Mississippi town of Brookhaven.  The time is a few days before the Fourth of July, 1984. Carnelle Scott, known locally as “Miss Hot Tamale”, is hoping that a victory in the annual beauty pageant, The Miss Firecracker Contest, will salvage her tarnished reputation and allow her to leave town in a blaze of glory.  Aided in her pursuit of the crown by touchingly awkward and cheerfully nutty characters, Carnelle perseveres—leading to a climax of unparalleled hilarity, compassion and a firework-worthy finish!
