About This Show

The BFF Binge Fringe Festival of Theatre, the only free Fringe Festival in the country, presents The Allure of Thug Life. A Hip Hopsical comedy 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! Written & performed by Mélia Mills. Produced by Jessica Lynn Johnson. Solo Coach Heather Dowling with Soaring Solo Studios. Music Arranger Aaron Wilson. Leyla Poloshani Outreach. Includes post-show reception with Melia.
