Tantrums & Tiaras: Battle of the Bar Queens is an event like no other. What can you expect to see? A high-quality spoof of beauty pageants, of course, complete with a “talent” showcase. Local companies sponsor contestants, none of whom have any experience, as they compete to be crowned the next community Queen! In collaboration with Mo's Universe, you can expect an evening of wigs, glitter and hilarity, all for a great cause! Join the fun and cheer for your favorites.
