This musical comedy will have you laughing throughout the entire show. Pageant, a hilarious beauty contest, unlike one you’ve ever seen, has six contestants, played by an all male cast, dreaming of being crowned Miss Glamouresse. And it gets better: Each night of the show, audience members get to choose the winner of the coveted tiara. There is sure to be a mix of joy and sorrow between contestants, and you’ll see it all unravel on stage. Swimsuit, talent and gown competitions will steer the show, and these beauty queens – Miss West Coast, Miss Texas, Miss Industrial Northeast, Miss Great Plains, Miss Deep South and Miss Bible Belt – will put on quite the show at Lyric Theatre of Oklahoma, 1727 NW 16th St., Oklahoma City opening Wednesday, Jan. 28, and running through Sunday, Feb. 15. The 2004 and 2006 productions of Pageant were extremely successful, and Lyric Theatre of Oklahoma expects nothing less in 2015. Tickets start at $25 and can be purchase at
