The Island Theater Company

Community theatre announces auditions for Spring shows.

 Marco Island, FL: (February 3, 2013) . . .The Island Theater Company will hold open auditions for two upcoming productions, Mama Won’t Fly and And The Tony Goes To….

Auditions for Mama Won’t Fly will be held February 11th and 12th, 7:00 – 8:00 pm on the second floor of Centennial Bank, 615 E. Elkcam Cr., Marco Island, FL.

Mama Won’t Fly is the latest play by the writing team of Jessie Jones, Nicholas Hope, and Jamie Wooten and will be directed by Pattie Ziesig.

Mama Won’t Fly is an outrageously hilarious race against the clock that begins when Savannah Sprunt Fairchild Honeycutt agrees to get her feisty mother all the way from Alabama to California in time for her brother’s wedding. The problem? Mama won’t fly.

With only four days to make it to the ceremony, Savannah has no choice but to drive cross-country with her equally willful mother in Mama’s vintage Buick. As Savannah steels herself for the trip, the bubbly, over-eager bride-to-be arrives unannounced. Delighted to finally meet her future in-laws, the bride-to-be is convinced traveling together to her wedding is the perfect way to bond. However, the journey is filled with mishaps, including the theft of their car and all their clothes, a near-fatal encounter at an underwear museum, a mad dash across the desert in a hijacked 18-wheeler and a riotous detour to Vegas that ends in a brawl with an ordained showgirl/minister.

There are lots of parts available for men and woman of all ages – from 20’s to 90’s. With large and small parts available it might be time to check one more item off on your “bucket list”. Sides (lines from the play) will be available at the auditions. Performances for Mama Won’t Fly are April17 to May 4 at the Rose History Auditorium, 180 S. Heathwood Drive, Marco Island.
