ABOUT THE MAMAS

 

 WHO WE ARE

 
 
 
 
 
The ZANY Red Hot Mamas are nothing but unique, capturing the hearts of all ages.  The group is composed of women with a Genuine Zest for Life, a Mama, Grandmama, Great Grandmama, OR just plain Great!  The Queen Mama is currently 80 years young, with most members ranging in age from 30 to 60 (But don't try guessing which ones are over 60 unless you can run real fast!!) These women triumph over all that life has to throw at them including illnesses and personal losses. Hi-Spirited, Vibrant, Full of Fun, and definitely: ONE-OF-A-KIND
 
  • The One of a Kind Red Hot Mamas are a not for profit musical/comedy service organization. Founded by artistic director, Mikki Stevens in 1993. Auditions are held annually.


  • Members are trained in theatrical performance skills, stage makeup, costuming, choreography, drill team, dance, sound tech, and properties management for public presentation.


  • They were entered into congressional record by Governor Butch Otter and also honored to receive The Americanism Award from the VFW for writing and producing an original play entitled “Tribute to the American Spirit” to support 9/11 relief efforts.


  • The group mission is to encourage and motivate women to be all they want to be at all ages, while evidencing humor, hope, and fun through uplifting entertainment to Change the World!

WHAT WE ARE

The Red Hot Mama Parade Unit is a dance/drill team featuring strollers, milk jugs, mops, shopping carts, or any other idea we get.  The combination of drill team precision and outrageous costumes cause a Rip Roarin' Riot wherever we go.
 



 

The Theatrical Group produces musical/comedy shows, and is well known for spoofs such as "The Blues Mothers", "Rappin Mama", and "Riverprance" as well as infamous ballets to Rachmaninoff and Tchaikovsky.  Singing, Dancing and "hold onto your aching stomach" laughter abound.

COSTUMES



The Mamas’ designer costumes have been anything from bright colored house dresses with a variety of interesting aprons to oversized rapper pants. All performers wear matching shoes, socks and gloves. Many times, the ensemble is topped off with our crowning glory: THE GROCERY HAT. 5' tall hats are an original work of art of empty grocery items such as cereal, cracker and detergent boxes. Each one is crowned with OTHER "SURPRISES". Costumes and decorations are customized to event themes.
 
 


MUSIC


Exciting music accompanies performances and features dynamic, crowd pleasing, up-lifting, familiar tunes such as "We are Family", “We’re Not Gonna Take It”, “Born to be Wild”, "Jump", "R U Ready for This?" and "Shout". Music reflects event theme.
