MAME TO OPEN THURSDAY, JUNE 22

MANSFIELD—"Mame," Hamilton-Gibson's summer musical comedy with toe-taping tunes, dancing and heart will open on Thursday, June 22 at 7:30 p.m. in Straughn Auditorium at 35 Straughn Drive on the Mansfield University campus. Performances will also be given in Straughn at 7:30 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, June 23 and 24 and at 2:30 p.m. on Sunday, June 25.
With music and lyrics by Jerry Herman and book by Jerome Lawrence and Robert Edwin Lee, this 1966 Broadway musical comedy starred Angela Lansbury and is based on the 1955 novel "Auntie Mame" by Patrick Dennis and the 1956 Broadway play by Lawrence and Lee that starred Rosalind Russell.

The novel chronicles the madcap adventures of Patrick growing up as the ward of the sister of his dead father and was inspired by Dennis' real life eccentric aunt, Marion Tanner, whose life and outlook mirror those of Mame.

Patrick is orphaned at 10 and travels from Des Moines, Iowa to New York City to live with his Auntie Mame. "When he and his nanny arrive, they wander into a wild party, a raging prohibition-era shindig starring the fantastic, flamboyant, eccentric, charismatic, one-and-only Mame Dennis.

After the stock market crash leaves her penniless, fearless Mame tries to keep caring for her nephew even as she reinvents herself from party girl to working girl, Southern belle, world traveler, wealthy widow and literary autobiographer.

As a grown-up, Patrick brings his debutante girlfriend to meet Mame who saves her nephew from his world of preppy prejudice.

Featuring one of the most dynamic and lovable heroines of the Broadway stage, Mame is described as wildly optimistic - and just plain wild. The show is an ode to a colorful, unconventional, well-lived life.
