Drop Dead Gorgeous

Book and Lyrics by Laura Kleinbaum

Music by Willem Oosthuysen

It’s 1995 in Mont Rose, Minnesota (population 5,075) and it’s pageant season.  Watch the competition heat up as Mont Rose High’s most capable seventeen-year-old girls compete for the Miss American Teen Princess crown—a crown that means fame, scholarship money, and getting the hell out of town.  Emotions run high and eventually, so does the body count. Winning is a super big deal.
