What will happen when an awkward outsider dives head first into the perilous seas of a beauty pageant? Come and get swept away on an incredible adventure full of blood, sweat and tans...with added sequins.

Our staunch-hearted hero may think she knows what’s she’s up against, but round after round, as girls are viciously eliminated from the competition, she discovers a new side to both them and herself.

Miss Congeniality meets Roald Dahl in Poet vs Pageant - an award-winning storytelling show that will have your giggling, gasping and clutching at your heart.
