Life is a banquet, and most poor suckers are starving to death! That’s the motto of Mame Dennis, one of musical theatre’s all-time greatest heroines, in this brassy, hilarious and touching adaptation of Patrick Dennis’s bestseller, Auntie Mame, starring critically acclaimed and two-time Olivier Award-winner Tracie Bennett.

Set in New York City and spanning the Great Depression and World War II, Mame Dennis and her intellectual and arty clique are disrupted when her decreased brother’s 10 year old son Patrick is intrusted into her care. Rather than bow to convention, Mame tries her hand at a number of jobs with comically, disastrous results but preserves with good humour and an irrepressible sense of style.

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,” “Bosom Buddies” and “That’s How Young I Feel.”

With spirit, humour, class and wit, MAME is sure to thrill audiences for generations to come. Starring Olivier award winner Tracie Bennett (She Loves Me, High Society, End of the Rainbow, Hairspray, Blood Brothers, Coronation, Scott & Bailey) and directed by the superb Nick Winston (Director and Choreographer ofThe Royal Variety Performances), this marvellous feel good musical hasn’t been seen on the UK stage in over 50 years.

EARLY BOOKING HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
