I was given a mix tape once… It was an awesome selection of metal and I loved it. I wanted to play it all the time but old fashioned tapes didn’t last very long, so I had to be careful with it.
And then my sister recorded Destiny’s Child or some such over it! Can you believe it!?
Last Thursday we got to see Mix Tape at Theatre on the Square and I loved that too!
When we arrived we were greeted with some glorious treats! Strawberry daiquiris, pina coladas, popcorn, and a table full of sweets -Toffees, pixie sticks, lollipops, sweethearts, eclairs – it was awesome!
This is my kind of theatre experience!
And the music was so cool! I was trying not to sing along too loudly so as not to annoy the patrons around me, but it was hard to keep quiet. Perhaps thats what the toffees were for… *grin*
The show tells a wonderful story of friends brought together by music, and the relationships they form with each other. I had a lump in my throat on more than one occasion too, so you may want to take some tissues along with you.
From the website: 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…
