Fitz&Startz Productions, Theater for All Ages presents Aunt Mae Comes to Town, book & lyrics by Rachel Lampert, music by John Coyne at the Kitchen Theatre Company, 417 West MLK/State Street stage, on Saturday October 26 at 11am and 1pm and Saturday, November 2 at 11am and 1pm. Four performances only.

Martha eagerly awaits the arrival of her great Aunt Mae. Once a month, Aunt Mae makes the trip to Ithaca with a bag full of surprises and a photo album with a lifetime of photographs and "a story to go with every one of them!" Stories come to life and Aunt Mae and Martha get swept into all of them.

Fitz&Startz Production veterans (A Case for the Classics, Emmett & Ella:The Puppy Plot) Natasha Bratkovski, Benno Ressa, Mike Cyr and guest Eric Brooks* are quick-change artists playing numerous roles as they bring Aunt Mae's stories to life. Making her Fitz&Startz Productions debut is DeWitt Middle School student Mwape Sokoni (Martha). and writer/actor Rachel Lampert* is on stage as Aunt Mae. Lesley Lisa Greene directs; Travis Knapp music directs; Daisy Rudin assistant directs; Hannah Kochman designs the costumes; and Tasha Sinclair is the stage manager.

"There was a real great Aunt Mae in my life. She was a great story-teller. She lived on NYC's Lower East Side and loved to share stories of her childhood. She introduced me to the world of theater and dance. It's been a delight to remember her in this play and to work with everyone in the cast and on the creative team," says writer Rachel Lampert.
