Two Bored Beryls The Pageant

Former pageant darling Victoria Beauvoir and her long-term devotee Roger Seahorse are keeping the beauty pageant dream alive. Their lifelong mission to show the true power of pageantry is culminating in this very prestigious, glamorous and completely self-funded affair.

The competition has never been tougher, the teeth have never been whiter and the hair has never been bigger! But who will take home the crown?

A children’s beauty pageant that is most definitely not for children.

'It's the beauty pageant to end all beauty pageants... a hugely entertaining evening of hilarity' My Melbourne Arts 

“I’ve never seen someone twirl a baton like Victoria, it’s magic!” Patti Newton 

“Roger Seahorse has a smile that could stop the navy in its track, and it has!” Osher

“Victoria Beauvoir and Roger Seahorse are completely and undeniably responsible for ruining my life.” Beatrice, 8

The Pageant is performed and created by Patrick Dwyer and Laura Trenerry (one third of The Travelling Sisters, Winner Best Comedy 2017 Melbourne Fringe).

Suitable for audiences 16+
