The contestants and the shows they represent include Andrew Chappelle (Mamma Mia!), Wilkie Ferguson (Porgy and Bess), Corey Mach (Godspell), Jesse Swimm (Mary Poppins), and Anthony Wayne (Priscilla Queen of the Desert). They will compete for the title crown through talent, interview and swimsuit competitions.
The event will also feature performances from Broadway star Brent Barrett, and past Pageant winners Frankie James Grande and Michael Cusumano.
The Pageant is written and conceived by Jeffery Self and directed by Ryan J. Davis, with musical direction by Christopher Denny. Celebrity judges will be announced at a later date.
