The Drowsy Chaperone is a musical within a comedy, where a modern day musical theater enthusiast known as “Man in Chair” chases his blues away by playing his favorite 1920s musical album on his record player. The musical springs to life in his living room telling the tale of a dazzling Broadway starlet, Janet Van De Graaff, who decides she wants to give up her glamour life to become a wife. What Janet doesn’t know is that her producer and chaperone have set up a plan to stop the nuptials. Join us for an evening of fun when the “Man in Chair” (Michael Toole) introduces us to a starlet (Jane Hefel), a despairing chaperone (Libby Hall), a greedy producer (Colby LaMarche), a debonair groom (Corey Candelet), a tap dancing best man (Jordan Auber), a dizzy flapper girl (Kaitlyn Morin), gangsters posing as pastry chefs (Ian Capozzoli and Jouval Mejias), a female aviator (Haley Barravecchia), a Latin lover (Jay Nieuwenhuis) and a cast of over 60 singers and dancing follies. “Finally, a musical about people who adore musicals!”
