Miss Caledonia - November 4- 28
It’s 1955, and Peggy Ann Douglas is hitching her wagon to the pageant circuit in the hope it’ll steer her from her farm to the bright lights of a Hollywood movie set. A play packed with baton twirling, big laughs, and some fantastic fiddle playing. This is a play for anyone who knows what it’s like to dream big and hustle to make it happen.
