"THE DROWSY CHAPERONE": MUSICAL COMEDY SHOW COMING TO HIGH SCHOOL STAGE MAR. 30-APR.1


“The Drowsy Chaperone,” this Spring’s high school musical, premiers Thu., MarcH 30, with two additional performances Fri., March 31, and Sat., April 1.  All performances are at 7 p.m. at the school auditorium. The show is directed by Gary Passamonte and conducted by Victor Izzo III. Tickets are available now at www.seatyourself.biz/minisink

 

Winner of five Tony Awards, including Best Book and Best Original Score, “The Drowsy Chaperone” is a loving send-up of the Jazz Age musical, featuring one show-stopping song and dance number after another.

 

With the houselights down, a man in a chair 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 as the man in the chair looks on. 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.

 

Hailed by New York Magazine as "The Perfect Broadway Musical," “The Drowsy Chaperone” is a masterful meta-musical, poking fun at all the tropes that characterize the musical theatre genre. Not suitable for children under the age of 9.
