Peggy Ann has a plan — she just has to become a movie star
Peggy Ann Douglas figures the best way to escape her life of chicory-pulling, stall-cleaning, hay-baling drudgery, is by picking up a baton and twirling her way out of town. The plan is simple: to win the local pageant and move up to movie star from there. Combating nerves and a ‘puritanical work ethic’, she sets her sights on a life far away from the farm.
Written and performed by Melody A. Johnson, a Canadian Comedy Award winner, Miss Caledonia is a refreshing one-woman show, with big dreams and a rough reality. Accompanied by Alison Potter’s sassy fiddle playing, this loving performance comes complete with Johnson’s quirky quips and a dizzying baton routine.
