A Delaware County gal who moved to NYC in order to achieve her goals of becoming a professional actress is back in Delco. Victoria Guiteras Mayo of Springfield is portraying the role of Rose in The Media Theatre's production of "Dogfight" March 9-27.
A Temple University grad, she was previously seen at Media as Tracy in "Hairspray", Millie in "Why Do Fools Fall In Love", and as Thea in "Spring Awakening". She has worked recently with Sally Struthers as Doralee in "Nine To Five" and in "Spamalot" for which she received a Broadway World Award as Best Actress in the DC region as The Lady of The Lake.
“Dogfight” takes place in 1963 focusing on three young marines on the eve of their deployment. During their final night of partying in the States Corporal Eddie Birdlace meets Rose, an awkward and idealistic waitress who he enlists to win a cruel bet with his buddies. But Rose turns the tables and brings the power of love and compassion to Eddie’s life. Inspiring with a score that is hauntingly beautiful, “Dogfight” is memorable with its charming soul.
Zack Krajnyak plays Eddie Birdlace in the show directed by Jesse Cline. For tickets, call 610-891-0100 or visit mediatheatre.org
