In the Wings: Mame. Meet Maggie Pearl.



Maggie Pearl is in the chorus of Mame, the fifth and final show in the 2013-2014 MainStage season at Civic Theatre of Greater Lafayette. Jerry Herman wrote the music and lyrics. Jerome Lawrence and Robert E. Lee wrote the book based on the novel "Auntie Mame" by Patrick Dennis.

Question: Why did you audition for the musical?
Maggie Pearl: I thought it would be fun. This will be the final show for a lot of my Civic friends, so I thought it would be nice to be part of it.

Q: What makes your life a banquet?
Maggie Pearl: Friends and family, and of course Civic Theatre.
