Vincent Victoria Presents is proud to announce the return of the comedy stage production of “Auntie Shameka!”, an irreverent satirical comedy, loosely based on the hit legendary Broadway play “Auntie Mame.
Set in Houston's Historic Third Ward,”Auntie Shameka the tells the story of Shameka “Shame” Kennedy”, a flamboyant Ghetto Fabulous Hair Technician whose life is turned upside down when her recently deceased brother's naive teen aged son comes to live with her and her “Gangsta” friends.
When the play first premiered in Houston in 2010 audiences were rolling in the aisles with laughter.
This daring comedy written and conceived by Vincent Victoria and directed by Keith Harris, uses adult humor,farcical situations, and surprising irony to prove that even though Auntie Shameka may live in the “hood” surrounded by gangs and guns, good intentions and love will always prevail.
Using rotating casts,the show will showcase some of the actors from the first productions including Arnette Watson as «Auntie Shameka» (first weekend only) Jabari Raul Collins as «Puss» (first weekend). Vincent Victoria as Mr. Limpwood (second weekend), Sedrick Keeler as Cat (First weekend) and
