I Remember MamaKirk Players announces the final show of its 51st season, I Remember Mama, by John Van Druten, based on Kathryn Forbes’ novel, Mama’s Bank Account.
The charming story shows how Mama, with help from her husband and Uncle Chris, brings up the children in their modest San Francisco home during the early years of the 20th century. Mama’s sisters and Uncle Chris furnish a rich background for heartwarming comedy, while the doings of the children manage to keep everyone in pleasant turmoil.
The show can be seen at Mundelein High School Theatre on Friday, June 9 and Saturday, June 10 at 7:30pm. Additional performances are offered on Saturday, June 10 and Sunday, June 11 at 2:00pm.
