An outrageous spoof of teenage beauty pageants. Two hucksters, Joe Allen and Steve Bentley, decide to stage a Miss Junior Venus Beauty Pageant in order to attract sponsors and hundreds of high school lovelies who'll pay a large entry fee to make them rich. Unfortunately, only seven girls enter, and there are no sponsors. Complicating matters, theatre owner Mrs. Hoopway tries to evict them, and Knuckles Skinner, a menacing thug, wants to harm them bodily! Our heroes spend most of their time either running or hiding in this good-natured farce carnival filled with goofy characters: Lois Del Monaco, who won local fame playing Romeo in a Little Theatre production; Pippi Wrongstocking, who harbors a curious secret; George, the always-smiling weatherman; and the judges Rose Bowl and Penny Loafer, straight from waitressing at Mumbles Fast Food Coffee Shop. The lunatic action and slapstick plot gets funnier and funnier, with the actual pageant as the finale, complete with an outlandish talent show. Amazingly, everything turns out okay. The no-problem set is a snap, and the staging is simple. Many of the small roles may be managed with only a couple of rehearsals. This is one night's entertainment that will keep you laughing!
