The Drowsy Chaperone

March 13th, 2014

“The Drowsy Chaperone” pays tribute to the Jazz-age shows of the 1920s and the power those shows held to transport us into a dazzling fantasy to lift our spirits in times of sadness. The show revolves around one musical theatre fan’s obsession with a fictional show from the 1920s – ‘The Drowsy Chaperone’. As he listens to the recording, the characters come to life in his apartment to tell the story of Janet Van de Graff, actress who wants to give up her stage career to marry the debonair Robert Martin. Mr. Feldzieg, producer Janet’s show, must stop the wedding so that his show will continue. The musical is a hilarious parody of American musical theatre clichés and Broadway cracks, and it also boldly addresses a great unspoken desire in all of our hearts: to be entertained.

Performances: March 27, 28, and 29th at 6:30pm in the Mercy Auditorium.
