Theatre department will stage ‘Mame!’

Auditions for “Mame!,” Illinois Valley Community College’s fall theatre production were Aug. 28-29, and a cast list will be announced soon. The theatre department’s first major musical since 2019’s record-breaking season of “Mamma Mia!” and “Elf–The Musical,” “Mame!” will be staged Nov. 10-20. With music and lyrics by Jerry Herman (creator of “Hello, Dolly,” “La Cage Aux Folles,” “The Grand Tour,” ), Mame! is one of Herman’s biggest hits.
