About the Show

A classic musical based on the novel "Auntie Mame" by Patrick Dennis and the play "Auntie Mame" by Jerome Lawrence and Robert E. Lee.

Story: Mame Dennis's eccentric, bohemian lifestyle is interrupted when her late brother's son is entrusted to her care. But rather than adopt to any societal standards about child rearing, money-making and romance - Mame does everything with her own dramatic flair.
