Mame opens tonight and runs through March 2 at The 5th Avenue Theatre.

"Mame tells the hilarious story of an eccentric socialite in the Roaring '20s who finds her madcap Manhattan lifestyle turned upside down when she is appointed guardian of her orphaned nephew. Auntie Mame takes him on one whirlwind adventure after another, proving that 'life is a banquet.' With a rogue's gallery of memorable characters, Mame has touched the hearts and tickled the funnybones of audiences everywhere," describe press notes.

The irresistible score by Jerry Herman (Hello, Dolly!, La Cage aux Folles) includes the title song, "If He Walked Into My Life" and "We Need A Little Christmas."

Tickets to Mame are priced from $20 - $77. Tickets are available over the phone by calling 206-625-1900 (toll free 888-5TH-4TIX), online at or in person at the box office in downtown Seattle. There is no service charge when purchasing tickets in person at The 5th Avenue Theatre Box Office.
