MORTIMER WILLIAMS, VANESSA FROST,and KRISTY SUTTNER and 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…
