Collaboraction is holding auditions for the role of “Mary-Marie-Maria” in Red Island, created by Carla Stillwell & Anthony Moseley, written by Carla Stillwell, directed by Anthony Moseley and music by Shawn Wallace.

Cousin Brother challenges his niece Future, a 16 year old aspiring musician, to make meaningful music that challenges this backwards world that we live in. But first Future must understand how we got to this era of inequity, hate and MAGA hats.

Red Island is a musical satire that shines a light on our nation’s outrageous history and the ridiculous evolution of American “isms.” Red Island shows us how art and music can be the catalyst for a revolution.
