An Honor from The News & Observer's Theatre Review:
"Carly Prentis Jones had a busy year, emerging as another candidate for bigger things. She delivered distinctive characterizations in five productions: the wily witch in “The Fairytale Lives of Russian Girls” and a shell-shocked apocalypse survivor in “Mr. Burns” (both at Manbites Dog); Celie’s sister Nettie in “The Color Purple” (Justice Theater Project); another Nettie, singing a heart-felt “You’ll Never Walk Alone” in “Carousel” (Theatre Raleigh); and a spunky Dorothy in “The Wiz” (Burning Coal.)"

Cary’s Booth Amphitheater (September 7th – 10th) It’s the tail end of the big, bad 1980s in Hollywood, and the party has been raging hard. Aqua Net, Lycra, lace and liquor flow freely at one of the Sunset Strips last legendary venues, a place where sex machine Stacee Jaxx takes the stage and scantily clad groupies line up to turn their fantasies into reality. Amidst the madness, aspiring rock star (and resident toilet cleaner) Drew longs to take the stage as the next big thing (and longs for small-town girl Sherri, fresh off the bus from Kansas with stars in her eyes). But the rock and roll fairy-tale is about to end when German developers sweep into town with plans to turn the fabled Strip into just another capitalist strip mall. Can Drew, Sherri, and the gang save the strip–and themselves–before it’s too late? Only the music of hit bands Styx, Journey, Bon Jovi, Whitesnake and more hold the answer. Some adult language and situations. Suitable for 16 years old and up.
Carly is excited to play the role of Justice in this production!
