IT IS MAGIC by Mickle Maher
From the brilliantly twisted mind of Mickle Maher comes a new dark comedy that challenges the limits of the theatre’s magic while mashing up the curse of the audition, The Three Little Pigs and, curiously enough, Macbeth.
At a community theatre audition for a new adaptation of the Three Little Pigs intended for adult audiences, two sisters set out to search for an actor to play the role of the Wolf. As they struggle to cast the right actor, they are quickly confronted with the darkness inside the audition room-- and themselves.
More foul than fair but equally hilarious IT IS MAGIC features an all-star cast of award-winning actors that includes Jill Blackwood (⟵YES THAT ONE), Kathy Catmull (SONG ABOUT HIMSELF), John Christopher (THE BROTHERS SIZE), Robert Pierson (THE STRANGERER), and Rebecca Robinson (THE GOAT) and is directed by two time B. Iden Payne and Austin Critics Table award-winning director Mark Pickell.
