The Bituminous Coal Queens of Pennsylvania documents the odyssey of
Hollywood actress Sarah Rush back to her roots as a 16-year-old
pageant winner, growing up in Southwestern, Pennsylvania. Filled
with colorful local characters, it is a look at small town America
that captures the spirit of the community during the 50th
Anniversary celebrations of the Coal Queen Pageant and the King
Coal Festival in August of 2003. Sarah travels back to her hometown
and subsequently to the State Theatre in Uniontown, where
rehearsals for the pageant are underway. The contestants have won
the right to represent each of 14 high schools from the area in the
competition, which is comprised of talent, 'the impromptu' question
and answer session and the evening gown display. Through the lives
of the girls and the events surrounding the pageant we learn more
about them and the ties that bind the wider community.
