The Berkshire Theatre Festival's world premiere of Pageant Play – Mark Setlock and Mathew Wilkas' outrageous look at child beauty pageants – begins performances on the Unicorn Stage July 1.

Setlock portrays in-demand pageant coach Bobby with Wilkas as his partner Bob, a pageant coach "with a special flair for choreography and hair." Joining the playwright-actors are Daiva Deupree (Two Girls for Five Dollars) and Jenn Harris (Modern Orthodox), who portray ruthless rival pageant mothers.

Martha Banta stages Pageant Play, which officially opens July 5 and continues through July 26.

The creative team includes set designer Luke Hegel-Cantarella, costume designer Jessica Risser-Milne, lighting designer Thom Weaver and sound designer Bart Fasbender.

Setlock is known for writing and starring in Fully Committed, co-written with Becky Mode. He has also penned the script for Wonderful Life, the stage adaptation of the holiday film "It's A Wonderful Life." Wilkas has appeared Off-Broadway in Far and Away and in the PS 122 staging of Carrie.

Tickets, priced $19.50-$44, are available by phoning (413) 298-5576 or visiting berkshiretheatre.org.
