Elaborate costumes, excellent singing and acting, late practices, and lost of hard work went into the staging of the Ada High School production "MAME". "MAME" took place March 23 and 24 under the direction of Lynn Knoble and Dean McDowell with assistance from Jeff Bowman of Lima.
The show tells the story of Marne Dennis and her philosophy of life, which is to “live"! She "inherits" her 10-year old nephew, Patrick, when his father suddenly passes away. We watch Patrick grow into a man, while Marne remains constant. Laughter, applause, and standing ovations topped off this production staged by the Music Department.
