Mame & Vera

AUNTIE MAME
by Jerome Lawrence and Robert E Lee, based on the novel by Patrick Dennis
December 10-19, 2009

CLICK HERE TO READ THE ANN ARBOR.COM REVIEW !

"The show is an ambitious one for any company to produce, let alone a community theater group. With 25 scenes, and tons of significant costume and set changes, “Mame” requires a versatile set and a stage crew that’s as well-rehearsed as the actors.  Fortunately, P.T.D.’s production has both."   ...Jenn McKee, Ann Arbor.com

Auntie Mame

 

Auntie Mame, the play that spawned the musical Mame, chronicles the madcap adventures of Patrick growing up as the ward of his deceased father’s eccentric sister, Mame Dennis. In short order, he’s attending a clothing-optional Bohemian school, putting to bed Mame’s hard-partying friend, actress Vera Charles; and learning to mix a perfect martini. None of this sits very well with Dwight Babcock, his father’s executor, who spirits him away to a boarding school. Mame loses “big time” in the 1929 crash. Things look bleak until she finds love and marries, only to be widowed a year later. Meanwhile, Patrick is growing up in a succession of boarding schools, and his visits to Auntie Mame become sporadic as he begins spending more vacation time with “Uncle Dwight.” 
As Mame watches her young nephew grow into a man she knows she must rescue him from the stuffy, conventional lifestyle towards which he is heading, because “Life’s a banquet and most poor suckers are starving to death!”   Mame’s appetite for life ensures that when she’s done, she won’t leave behind a single crumb of missed experience or an ounce of regret.
