About the play
A novel idea! It's 1990 and a cosmetic company decides to launch their new line by hosting a Mrs. Canada pageant. The lucky winner will be Minerva's spokesperson. A zany comedy featuring four contestants Astrid Kirshbaum, Corey Jo Dempsey, Bessie Kirk and Lily Strathcona with ideas of their own and an uptight "lady in charge" Ms. Ginny Bain . Throw into the mix, the mysterious Master of Ceremony Buster Kelahear and one never knows what will happen or what secrets get revealed. May you laugh till you cry.
Local Talent is written by our very own local playwright and supporter of our theatre Colleen Curran. (LOCAL TALENT premiered at the Blyth Festival in June 1990. The director was Maya Ardal).
