Performed as a 1930s radio drama, The Flying Flamingo Sisters is bursting with humor for all ages, orchestral scoring and some of the most talented voices on Broadway.
When their ace pilot parents (and adorable puppy) mysteriously disappear over the Pacific, the Flamingo sisters — Flo, Faye and Franny — set off to rescue them. Along the way, they escape the clutches of their evil Uncle Freidrich (who believes girls should never pilot aeroplanes) and join a flying circus. The Flamingo sisters quickly become a smashing sensation, performing aerial acrobatics, wing walking and other death-defying feats in a biplane.
But when they discover a mysterious map that may lead them to their parents — and the long-lost Flamingo family fortune — their dastardly uncle follows them on a thrilling chase in the skies. The girls must use wits, courage and some serious derring-do to solve secret codes, survive a dangerous trek through spooky jungles and save their parents. Not to mention themselves!
Carrie Seim is a writer and actress from the windswept plains of Nebraska. The Flying Flamingo Sisters was inspired by her grandfather’s real-life flying circus in the 1930s, and she was thrilled to voice the character of Franny for the Audible production.
Carrie has written for several Nickelodeon comedy specials, along with The New York Times, The Atlantic, NPR’s UnFictional, The New York Post, Cosmopolitan, Architectural Digest and McSweeney’s. An alum of The Groundlings comedy theater in Los Angeles, she has appeared on Inside Amy Schumer, E! TV and the Comedy Central Stage. You can hear her voice — as an evil robot, a ditzy pickle and a serious business lady — narrating audio books, animated shows and national commercials.
Carrie is now hard at work on a novel about horses — as well as the next edition of The Flying Flamingo Sisters!
