The Human Race Theatre Company continues its winning streak of re-imaging large-scale musicals with the Broadway hit Mame. Producing Artistic Director Kevin Moore takes on directing duties and looks to catch the same magic that made recent small-scale productions of Oliver! and Fiddler on the Roof such outstanding successes in the 212-seat Loft Theatre. The show centers around Mame Dennis, a well-to-do eccentric without a care until she becomes the guardian of her ten-year-old nephew, Patrick. Now it's up to her to open new windows and show the boy worlds he never knew existed. Through the Roaring 20s and the Great Depression, Mame teaches Patrick how to 'live, live, live'-whether he's willing or not. It's the dazzling musical that proves life's a banquet, featuring the classic songs 'We Need a Little Christmas,' 'It's Today,' 'Bosom Buddies' and, of course, 'Mame.'
