The year is 1955. Desperate to escape the chicory-pulling, stall-cleaning, hay-baling drudgery of life in Caledonia, Ontario. Peggy Ann Douglas has a plan. Following in the footsteps of starlets like Debbie Reynolds,Peggy Ann will simply become a movie star – and she will start her journey to the top by winning the local pageant. Can she sing, twirl and pivot her way into the judges’ hearts, or will shaky nerves and a “Puritanical Work Ethic” sabotage her efforts? Brimming with love and comedy, Miss Caledonia is a delightful exploration of optimism and reality down on the farm.
Brought to you by the Highlights Rural Touring Scheme, Canadian Comedy Award winner Melody A. Johnson, along with the delightful accompaniment of Alison Porter on fiddle, will have you in the palm of their hand on her quest for the tiara in Miss Caledonia.
“I would truly pay money to hear Johnson read the phonebook…she really knows how to deliver the goods.”
