The Theatre Company of Saugus presented Auntie Mame, by Lawrence and Lee, based on the novel by Patrick Dennis. Performances were held at the Belmonte Middle School in Saugus in May 2001. After it closed, a cutting of the show was taken to the EMACT Festival. Although we didn’t win any awards, we did earn three nominations: to Nancy Lemoine and Larry Segel for Set Design, to Terry Baskett for Makeup Design, and to Seth Holbrook for Best Supporting Actor as Patrick Dennis (as a young man).
