Slidell Little Theatre presents The Miss Firecracker Contest, onstage March 6-22, 2020.
The Miss Firecracker Contest, along with other Beth Henley plays, is characterized as a Southern Gothic. The play is set in the small southern town of Brookhaven, Mississippi, and tells an archetypical story of a young woman trying to reinvent herself. The two main qualities that land The Miss Firecracker Contest squarely into the Southern Gothic genre are 1.) the story concerns flawed characters and 2.) and it occurs in a once prosperous, but now run-down town.
Admission is $18 for adults, $10 for students/children For reservations, call (985) 641-0324 and leave a message or buy online at www.slidelllittletheatre.org.
