Coming To The Suncoast! Vicki Lawrence Brings "Mama" To The Stage
Multi-talented show woman Vicki Lawrence – known for her beloved character, “Mama” – will perform a two-act show at the Suncoast Showroom on April 16 and 17.
During her senior year of high school, Lawrence sent Carol Burnett a letter inviting Burnett to come see her performance in the local fire department’s “Miss Fireball Contest.” The letter included a newspaper article that mentioned their resemblance. Burnett, looking for an actress to portray her sister in a new variety series, attended the event. The rest is television history. "The Carol Burnett Show" premiered in the fall of 1967 and Lawrence starred in the show for 11 years, earning one Emmy Award and five Emmy nominations.
After the show ended, Lawrence went on to guest-star in numerous hit television series including “Laverne & Shirley,” “Love Boat” and “Murder She Wrote.” She is best known for her TV series, “Mama’s Family,” which aired from 1983-1990.
Lawrence also had recurring roles in “Hannah Montana” and “Phineas and Ferb.”
Showtime is 7:30 p.m. Tickets are available starting from $20, plus taxes and fees, and can be purchased at any Boyd Gaming box office by calling 702.284.7777, or by visiting www.suncoastcasino.com.
