The concerts, conceived, directed and hosted by Phil Geoffrey Bond, feature songs from the classic Jerry Herman musical. Music director is John McDaniel.

Performers include Klea Blackhurst, Lucia Spina, Annie Golden, Lewis Grosso, Dee Hoty, Cady Huffman, Marilyn Maye, Sean McDermott, Lee Roy Reams and Brian Charles Rooney with Raissa Katona Bennett, Matt Leahy, Karen Mack, Miles Phillips and Lisa Sabin.

Mame, based on Patrick Dennis' novel "Auntie Mame," features a score by Jerry Herman and a book by Jerome Lawrence and Robert E. Lee. The original Broadway production opened in May 1966 at the Winter Garden Theatre with Angela Lansbury as Mame and Bea Arthur as Vera Charles. Both Lansbury and Arthur won Tony Awards for their work. A subsequent film version cast Lucille Ball as the vivacious Mame.

The classic Herman score includes such tunes as "If He Walked Into My Life," "It's Today," "Open a New Window," "Mame," "Bosom Buddies" and "We Need a Little Christmas."
