About the Event
The Tony Award-winning musical, The Drowsy Chaperone, features a talented team of writers and producers. With music and lyrics by Lisa Lambert and Greg Morrison and a book by Bob Martin and Don McKellar, the production is a hilarious parody of the Golden Age musical. Under the direction of Kevin McCollum, Roy Miller, Bob Boyett, Stephanie McClelland, Barbara Freitag, and Jill Furman, the musical transports audiences to the fictitious 1928 production, complete with show-stopping song-and-dance numbers. As the houselights dim, a man in a chair starts to play his favorite recording, and The Drowsy Chaperone comes to life. The story follows the trials and tribulations of two lovers on the eve of their wedding, a bumbling best man, a desperate theatre producer, and two gangsters. This production, presented through a special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI), promises to leave audiences laughing and humming along.
