Synopsis: 
Originated in New York, Off- Broadway, the show digs into classical satire with cross-gender casting and celebrity judges culled from the audience. It’s a 90-minute, one-act romp, boldly pitting six contestants in pursuit of the tiara and title of “Miss Glamouresse”. Broadway director/choreographer, Robert Longbottom, conceived the show with male identifying actors in the roles as female contestants, but stressed this is not a drag show and the actors must carry their portrayal in honesty and earnest. “Part “Kids in the Hall” sketch comedy part 80’s era tribute”

Character 1 Name: 
Miss Industrial Northeast
Character 1 Age: 
22-30
Character 1 Description: 
MISS INDUSTRIAL NORTHEAST, CONSUELA MANUELA RAFAELLA LOPEZ - Included among the regional winners mostly due to Glamouresse's belated sense that the times they are a-changin' and the Northeast's notable lack of interest in the contest. Her talent has been culled from watching the variety show "Sabado Gigante" on Spanish television. PLEASE PREPARE TO SING THE NATURAL BORN FEMALES AND GOODBYE MUSIC SELECTION AND INE SPOKESMODEL AND INTERVIEW SIDES
Character 2 Age: 
22-33
Character 2 Name: 
Miss Bible Belt
Character 2 Description: 
MISS BIBLE BELT, RUTH ANN RUTH - Believes that she plus God equals a majority in any situation. She sees even the cheesiest part of the Glamouresse Beauty Regimen as part of His Plan. This gives her a righteous attitude which is unshakable, but she also has the manic cheerfulness of the newly saved. Big belter voice, strongest singer in the group. PLEASE PREPARE TO SING THE BANKIN’ ON JESUS CUT AND THE NATURAL BORN FEMALES MUSIC SELECTION AND PREPARE BIBLE B. SPOKESMODEL AND INTERVIEW SIDES
Character 3 Name: 
Miss West Coast
Character 3 Age: 
22-35
Character 3 Description: 
MISS WEST COAST, KARMA QUINN - Like Miss Great Plains, is sweet-natured, but Karma is a lot less focused. She has tried to parlay her vagueness and I'll-try-anything-once attitude into a comprehensive mystical spirituality but it hasn't jelled. This pageant is the most structured event of her entire life. Actor should have some dance skills and (possibly) be able to create a different character for the reigning Mis Glamouresse. PLEASE PREPARE TO SING THE NATURAL BORN FEMALE AND GOODBYE MUSIC SELECTION AND PREPARE THE WC SPOKESMODEL AND INTERVIEW SIDES
Character 4 Name: 
Miss Texas
Character 4 Age: 
22-30
Character 4 Description: 
MISS TEXAS, KITTY-BOB AMES - The Professional of the group. With her father's money and a shrewd selection of contests, she has never lost a competition. Her skills may not be outstanding by themselves, but her attitude says "Winner" all the way. Actor must tap/clog dance to some rudimentary extent. PLEASE PREPARE TO SING THE NATURAL BORN FEMALES AND GOODBYE MUSIC SELECTION AND PREPARE TEXAS SPOKESMODEL AND INTERVIEW SIDES
Character 5 Name: 
Frankie Cavalier-STAND BY
Character 5 Age: 
38-52
Character 5 Description: 
FRANKIE CAVALIER - Our genial host, is certainly that. Frankie is a third or fourth-tier celebrity who is known to the audience where the pageant is being performed, perhaps as a weekend weather-report reader or a spokesman for a used car dealership. Strong singer who moves well. PLEASE PREPARE TO SING THE MISS GLAMOURESSE MUSIC SELECTION AND PREPARE FRANKIE’S SPEECH
