A slice of Broadway and West End musical theatre is coming to Stowmarket next month.

The Stowmarket Operatic and Dramatic Society (SODS) are performing a run of Mame at the Regal Theatre.

The musical show features a mix of comedy, songs and dance and will run from Wednesday May 10 until Saturday May 13 at the Ipswich Street theatre.

The show is about the titular Mame Dennis, a glamorous, well-to-do woman who lives a carefree life of pleasure in New York at the peak of the 1920s.

Out of the blue she is surprised by the arrival of her ten year old orphan nephew, named Patrick.

Memorable musical numbers include Bosom Buddies, We Need A Little Christmas, My Best Girl and Mame.

The show will be at 7.30pm each day plus a 2.30pm Saturday matinee.
