The Allure of Thug Life – A Hiphopsical

Namba Performance Arts Space
47 Oak Street
Ventura, CA 93001 United States
NAMBA presents ‘The Allure of Thug Life’ during our Playwrights’ Splash Festival this month. Multiple award winning performance by Melia Mills, this one-woman comedy is about Mélia, an upper middle-class teen from Oakland who wants to be a gangster rapper. Picture a 15 year old girl who wants to fit in at her new high school, but is bullied regularly. Struggling to find her own voice, she discovers her talent—rapping and begins straddling the fence between the good life and thug life. Mélia longs to go from Riches to Rags and encounters Bullying, Boyfriends and Bullets! This is the riveting story of one’s journey to discover their authentic self and the lengths they will go to own it. If you’re scared, stay home. If you’re fearless, roll through for this wild ride!
