Six men compete in a Beauty Pageant — and Gee Wiz, they have a great time trying to outdo each other. Oh- did I mention that hey all dress up with Outrageous costumes as women?

Here are the Ladies of the night on the Victoria Theater Stage: – Miss Deep South, Miss Bible Belt, Miss West Coast, Miss Industrial Northeast, Miss Texas and Miss Great Plains. The Girls, er Boys strut around the stage in the highest heels that I have ever seen. They obviously love spoofing the world of “Drag”.

To be fair — new Judges from the audience are asked to score contestants from the audience at each show. Of course, they are asked silly questions. And – the Beauty Queens answer in Beauty Queen Language. After all – they are busy looking at themselves in the mirror and being a Girl! Hey – how about this? One of the contestants plays an accordion as she spins around the stage on roller skates holding onto that accordion for dear life.

Every night is ‘Star Night’ for shapely contestants. They are better than “The Jersey Boys” that is now playing in town.

Every contestant wants to be crowned “Miss Glamouresse. Who will it be? That’s where the laughs a minute takes place. Will you be wearing the Crown Jewels?

RATING: FOUR GLASSES OF CHAMPAGNE!!!! (highest rating) -trademarked-
