The story takes place on one hot, dusty summer weekend in the present.
Former beauty queen Ima Jean Walker returns to her hometown of Mammoth Spring after a 20 year absence, self-assured of winning a local contest she believes will finally jumpstart a country music career. Tempers flare and Southern sparks fly when her now-famous high school rival appears on the scene and upsets Ima Jean's unfulfilled dreams of stardom.
Ima Jean Walker is played by Connie Beane, Charlotte Mae Powell by Ginny Shaw, Eva Jo Young by Misty Hamm, Daddy Walker by Jason Jett and Del Barnett by Michael Cristian. Alan Gardner-Atkinson directs, and the set design and construction are by Gardner-Atkinson and Ken Bynum.
