“The Drowsy Chaperone”
(Ages 13-19)

Tuesday, January 12, 2021

ABOUT THE SHOW — With the houselights down, a man appears on stage and puts on his favorite record: the cast recording of a fictitious 1928 musical. The recording comes to life and The Drowsy Chaperone begins. Mix in two lovers on the eve of their wedding, a bumbling best man, a desperate theatre producer, a not-so-bright hostess, two gangsters posing as pastry chefs, a misguided Don Juan, and an intoxicated chaperone … and you have the ingredients for an evening of madcap delight.
