"Life is a banquet!" is the motto of Mame Dennis, one of musical theatre's all-time greatest heroines, in this brassy, tuneful, hilarious and touching adaptation of Patrick Dennis' bestseller, "Auntie Mame."
When the irrepressible Mame inherits Patrick, a ten-year-old nephew, her socialite world is turned upside down. Along for the ride are Mame's best friend, Vera Charles, a multi-martini grand dame of the theatre and Agnes Gooch, the uptight nanny who also falls under Mame's spell.
Jerry Herman's celebrated score includes the rousing title number, plus "Open a New Window," "If He Walked into My Life," "We Need a Little Christmas," and "Bosom Buddies."
Mame is sponsored by Nebraska Lottery. Season sponsors are Russ's Market and KFOR.
