Anne Berkeley & Heather Bevels

Big Dawg Productions has 2 productions staged simultaneously-The Hermit of Fort Fisher is at the Greenfield Lake Amphitheatre through August 2, while "The Miss Firecracker Contest" is on the stage of the Cape Fear Playhouse.

"Fairly dense thematic content...an undercurrent of sadness, but an enjoyable comedy with wonderful characters." -Anne Berkeley, Director

Director Anne Berkeley is an associate professor in UNCW's Theatre Department.  She recently decided to branch out and direct plays for the community.  Her first venture is The Miss Firecracker Contest by a playwright she admires, Beth Henley.

Heather Bevels is the Stage Manager of this production of "Firecracker." She joined Ms. Berkeley in our studio to discuss the show.

The Miss Firecracker Contest runs July 30 through August 16.  Showtimes are Thursday-Saturday evenings at 8:00 + Sunday 3:00 matinees.  All Thursday performances have ticket discounts.  Find out more about tickets here.
