Miss Caledonia: Live Theatre

Hosted by artsPlace this is your chance to see authentic Canadian theatre.

The year is 1955. Desperate to escape the chicory-pulling, stall-cleaning, hay-baling drudgery of life in RR#2 Caledonia, Peggy Ann Douglas has a plan. Following in the footsteps of starlets Debbie Reynolds and Lee Meriwether, she will simply become a movie star – and she will start her journey to the top by winning the local pageant. Brimming with love, comedy, and a staggering work ethic, Miss Caledonia is a delightful exploration of optimism and reality down on the farm. Dora and Canadian Comedy Award winner Melody A. Johnson, along with the delightful accompaniment of Taylor Nelles-Mcgee on fiddle, will have you in the palm of her hand on her quest for the tiara in Miss Caledonia.
