The Greater Atlantic City GLBT Alliance in association with Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa continues its annual tradition this year with the Miss’d America Pageant in The Event Center on Saturday, September 22, 2018. The Great White Way will be well represented at this year’s event with lavish sets, incredible numbers from some of Broadway’s classic and latest shows. This year’s show will be one of the hottest tickets in Atlantic City.
A not-to-be-missed entertainment event, the Miss’d America Pageant started in 1994 at a local Atlantic City club and was created as a spoof of the world-famous Miss America Pageant to raise funds for a local charity. It took place annually on the night after that famous beauty pageant, the joke being that the drag performers ‘missed’ getting into the real pageant at Boardwalk Hall. It ended in 2005 and was absent from Atlantic City for nearly five years, before making its triumphant return on January 31, 2010 and has grown larger and more spectacular every year since.
Carson Kressley returns again as the host of this year’s pageant along with the incredible Miss’d America Dancers, Special Musical Guest Frankie Z, Miss’d America 2018 Pattaya Hart and the Melanie Rice Orchestra. The show will be once again written and directed by the talented Mark Dahl.
Portion of the proceeds from the 2018 Miss’d America Pageant will go to the Greater Atlantic City GLBT Alliance who will distribute to various LGBTQ and LGBTQ supportive charities. Since its inception, the pageant has donated over $300,500.00.
A contestant search is currently being conducted in New Jersey, New York, Washington DC, Baltimore, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Delaware and many other states. Contestants are being asked to complete a submission form and submit a three-minute video of their talent for consideration by a very distinguished panel of entertainment industry moguls.
Tickets are $35.00, $65.00, and a $100.00 VIP Ticket, which includes one complimentary drink and admission to the post pageant meet and greet reception. $1,200.00 Diamond Tiara (table of eight) tickets are also available, which includes bottle service, a complimentary bottle of champagne, and admission into the post pageant meet and greet reception. The $100 and Diamond Tiara $1,200.00 tickets are only available by calling the group sales office at 609-317-1138.
