Dear friends and other interesting creatures,
Have you ever made a tape for someone else? Usually to share how you feeling as music speaks when we cannot? Or have you ever made a tape to listen to in the car on a long drive?
That nostalgic feeling in your heart and small smile on your face, is exactly what is celebrated in this production. I sincerely hope you make the time to see it … and remember where you were when this song was playing. 🙂
Mix Tape: a compilation of favourite pieces of music, typically by many different artists, recorded on to tape or another medium by an individual.
Where were you when that song was playing?
starring MORTIMER WILLIAMS, VANESSA FROST, and KRISTY SUTTNER accompanied a three piece band.
Directed by TERRI ELLA
MIX TAPE is a heart-warming musical comedy about three unlikely friends and the mix tapes that inspired young love, jealousy, angst and embarrassing hairstyles.
Taking you back to when headbands were cool, Alanis was a rebel, and mix tapes defined a generation – we meet Marvin (Mortimer Williams), Vix (Vanessa Frost) and Katie (Kristy Suttner). The year is 2014, Vix is on her way to Cathcart, Marvin and Katie are on their way too. They’ve been best friends “for-like-ever” but they haven’t seen each other since 1997…that’s like 17 years. Expect lots of laughs as these friends remember the magical moments of their youth.
