Third annual Shrewsbury Sweethearts Pageant & Fashion Show
March 2 @ 7:00 pm
Shrewsbury – On Saturday, March 2, at 7 p.m., the Southgate Theatre, 30 Julio Dr., Shrewsbury, will host the third annual Shrewsbury Sweethearts Pageant and Fashion Show. Tickets are on sale at the door. This family friendly show is a three-part contest for the title of Miss Shrewsbury in three age groups of girls in grades 1 to 12.
Workshop rehearsals are free to all who join in the fun. Experienced Pageant winners will teach the participants stage presence, public speaking skills and leadership. The only prerequisite for this opportunity is to be willing to try pageantry and want to learn new skills and make new friends. Participants in the fashion show will brave the stage in their most favorite outfits and may win awards.
Pageant Director Elliana Davis and the pageant staff hope this multi-generation event will ignite the ambition of the participants to be more confident and create their own ideas of how to enjoy being a “fashionista” every day. Entertainment includes vocalist Gina Philips, The Diva Dancers, and other local talent contest winners.
The pageant finale of Davis’ 2017 Girl Scout Gold Project “Operation Spreading Confidence” has proved sustainable through the “Sweetheart Court” of Miss Shrewsbury. This year some of the Sweethearts’ community service included: seniors’ prom and parade inspiration, encouraging literacy by sharing stories at the Shrewsbury Farmers Market, a teen stress reduction, mindfulness and yoga workshop, and the “Going Green with Miss Pre-Teen” recycling effort promotions.
Candidates and show participants will be accepted until Thursday, Feb. 21. Contact [email protected] to join or if you would like to be a sponsor.
