MAME Opens At Candlelight Dinner Playhouse In Johnstown! Running Through 1/13

MAME, winner of five Tony Awards, opened November 8, 2012, and plays through January 13, 2013, at the Candlelight Dinner Playhouse. Based on PatRick Dennis' 1955 novel, "Auntie Mame: An Irreverent Escapade," MAME features an award-winning score by Jerry Herman with such favorites as "Bosom Buddies," "We Need a Little Christmas" and, of course, "Mame."

Filled with razor-sharp wit and charm, Dennis' book was adapted to the Broadway stage in 1956. It also inspired two classic films: AUNTIE MAME, with Rosalind Russell, and MAME with Lucille Ball.

MAME is the story of the flamboyantly eccentric Mame Dennis, whose bohemian life is turned on its head when her deceased brother's 10-year-old son Patrick is entrusted to her care. Rather than bow to convention, Mame introduces the boy to her free-wheeling lifestyle, instilling in him her favorite credo, "Life is a banquet, and most poor suckers are starving to death."

Regional favorites Bren. Eyestone Burron and Barb Reeves play the roles of Mame and her bosom buddy, Vera. Candlelight is also proud to present The Candlelight Carolers as pre-show entertainment from Thanksgiving through Christmas.

MAME showtimes are Thursday, Friday & Saturday Evenings -- Dinner seating at 6:00 pm; Show at 7:30 pm; Saturday Matinees – Dinner seating at 12 noon, show at 1:30 pm; and Sunday Matinees -- Dinner seating at 12:30 pm; Show at 2:00 pm. The show takes place at the Candlelight Dinner Playhouse located at 4747 Marketplace Drive, Johnstown, CO 80534) I?25 at Exit 254, just south of Historic Johnson's Corner.
