Slowly but surely, in-person events and entertainment are coming back here in the Coachella Valley. While there may still be some restrictions in place like capacity limits, mask and social distancing requirements, temperature screening and specified entries and exits, it does seem like we’re starting to return to normal.

Desert Rose Productions, Inc. Presents The Miss Firecracker Contest | Thursdays at 7pm, Fridays & Saturdays at 8pm & Sundays at 2pm from June 17th to July 4th | Desert Rose Playhouse, Palm Springs

The Miss Firecracker Contest is a Southern Gothic comedy written by Beth Henley. Its heroine, Carnelle, is an irrepressible young woman who thinks that winning the local beauty contest will restore her soiled reputation and make her somebody in her small Mississippi community. The family and friends who help her along the way are a dysfunctional bunch who tackle life in their own peculiar ways. The general conclusion that the colorful characters reach is that, even if the real you is not the fulfillment of your hopes, you will be more at peace if you learn to define and accept your own self.
