We Need A Little Christmas…
And it’s coming to Theatre on Main this December! “We are thrilled to be staging “Mame” and we have a very talented cast and great leads in Oconomowoc residents, Liz ”Mary Beth” Norton as Mame Dennis and Mark Alexander as Beauregard,” exclaims Kimm Mann, Managing Director of Theatre on Main.
The madcap New York life of eccentric Mame Dennis and her bohemian, intellectual artsy clique is disrupted when her deceased brother’s son Patrick is entrusted to her care. Rather than bow to convention, Mame introduces the boy to her free-wheeling lifestyle. Mame loses her fortune in the Wall Street Crash of 1929 and tries her hand at a number of jobs, with comically disastrous results, but perseveres with good humor and an irrepressible sense of style. Mame consists of touching numbers such as “My Best Girl” and “We Need A Little Christmas.” It ran for 1508 performances on Broadway at the Winter Garden and Broadway Theatres starring Angela Lansbury, Beatrice Arthur and Frankie Michaels, and won three Tony Awards for Best Leading Actress, Best Featured Actress, and Best Featured Actor. It was revived on Broadway in 1983, again with Angela Lansbury starring as Mame Dennis.
“You won’t want to miss Liz Norton premiering in her role as Mame Dennis,” exclaims Sandy Manfrin, Theatre on Main’s General Manager. “This past Friday at our annual fundraising dinner, Liz sang “If He walked Into My Life” from the show, and she brought down the house – it was just fantastic! We can’t wait for everyone to see this production on stage!
