mercyhurst university logoThe Miss Firecracker Contest is the inspiring story of Camelle Scott, an orphan living in Brookhaven, Mississippi.  Camelle is furiously rehearsing her patriotic tap dance for the Miss Firecracker contest, hoping that a victory will salvage her tarnished reputation as the town’s “Miss Hot Tamale” and allow her to leave Brookhaven in a “crimson blaze of glory.”  The unexpected arrival of her cousin Elain, a former Miss Firecracker, and Elain’s eccentric brother, Delmount, complicates matters.  Nonetheless, Camelle perserveres, leading to a climax of hilarity, heart, and radiant fireworks!
