Boca High Drama Department presents “Auntie Mame”
BOCA RATON — The award-winning Boca Raton Community High
School Drama Department will open its season with a richly-staged
production of “Auntie Mame,” by Jerome Lawrence and Robert Lee.
With a cast of more than 30 students in vibrant period costumes and
sets, the show will run from November 3rd through 5th in the school’s
Kathryn Lindgren Theatre.
With a gallery of memorable characters, Auntie Mame tells the
hilarious story of an eccentric socialite 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.” Highly successful in Broadway
productions, in film versions, the play is based on the best-selling
novel by Patrick Dennis.
“The irreverent Auntie Mame has touched the hearts and tickled the
funny bones of audiences everywhere,” said Drama Department
Director Mindy Clarke. “And our production is sure to entertain and
delight all generations today.”
Boca High’s Kathryn Lindgren Theatre is located at 1501 NW 15th
Court, Boca Raton (just east of 1-95 and just south of Glades Road,
across from University Commons Shopping Center).
Show times are Thursday, Friday and Saturday, November 3-5,
2011 at 7p.m., and a matinee on November 5 at 2 p.m. Tickets for
open seating are $8 in advance and $12 at the door. The house
opens thirty minutes prior to curtain. Group rates (for twenty or more)
are available on request for $7 each. This year, new VIP advanced
reserved seating is available at $15 per person, limited to 150
tickets per show. For more information, call (561) 338-1533 or visit
The Boca Raton Community High School season’s second major
production will be the popular Gershwin musical, “Crazy for You.” It is
scheduled for Thursday, Friday and Saturday, March 1-3, 2012 at 7
p.m., and Saturday and Sunday, March 3 & 4 at 2 p.m.
“Without the community’s generous support, Boca High’s drama
program simply would not have the opportunity to be so successful,”
said Clarke. “In addition to attending productions, our ‘Friends of the
Arts’ program allows residents to contribute to our department and be
recognized in the programs. We also invite local businesses to place
ads in the programs.”
