James Tolin Memorial Fund's "Die Mommie Die"
As part of its ninth annual theater benefit weekend, the James Tolin Memorial Fund (JTMF) brings the campy, outrageous spoof "Die Mommie Die" to Kelsey Theatre this month.
According to Tracy Antozzeski, JTMF's co-founder and president, the actors and production staff welcome the chance to come back to Kelsey Theatre each year to honor the memory of James Tolin, an MCCC Theatre alumnus who died in 2002. "We are very excited to work with these fine actors and are looking forward to another memorable and incredibly fun production," Antozzeski said. More here.
