The Drowsy Chaperone

October 11 - October 20, 2019

A musical within a comedy!

“The Drowsy Chaperone” is an uproariously hilarious parody of a 1920’s American musical comedies in which a middle-aged musical theatre fan plays the record of his favorite musical, bringing the show to life in his imagination as he wryly comments on the music, story, and actors. 

The show incorporates many classic musical comedy tropes, such as mistaken identities, dream sequences, spit takes, a deus ex machina, an unflappable English butler, an absent-minded dowager, a Broadway impresario and his Follies production, comic gangsters, a harried best man, and Janet's drunken chaperone, played in the show-within-a-show by a Grande Dame of the stage.

Written by Bob Martin and Don McKellar with music and lyrics by Lisa Lambert and Greg Morrison, “The Drowsy Chaperone” opened on Broadway in 2006. The show was nominated for multiple Broadway and West End theatre awards, winning five Tony Awards and seven Drama Desk Awards.
