SYNOPSIS

It's the height of the roaring 20's and the indomitable Auntie Mame becomes the guardian to her ten-year-old nephew Patrick. While her life is turned upside down and many of her priorities change, Mame stays true to her mantra, "Life is a banquet!", and takes on the establishment with style and panache, living life to the fullest while opening new windows to the eyes of her young charge. Mame is one of Broadway's biggest and brassiest musicals and will be the kick-off to the Playhouse's 75th Anniversary Celebration Season.

PRODUCTION RUN July 14-30
