The Drowsy Chaperone

Music and Lyrics by Lisa Lambert and Greg Morrison
Book by Bob Martin and Don McKellar
Directed and Choreographed by Russell Garrett
East Sonora Theatre

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.


The Drowsy Chaperone is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI). All authorized performance materials are also supplied by MTI. www.mtishows.com

Particularly memorable for his acting roles as anti-hero,TV-watching agoraphobic Curtis in 2 seasons of ‘Twitch City’, voicing the character ‘Jack’ in 5 seasons of Odd Job Jack and as pretentious theatre director Darren Nicholls in ‘Slings and Arrows’. McKellar has even covered the musical genre with his co-written play ‘The Drowsy Chaperone’ which won him a Tony Award, touring Toronto, London and New York and currently has plans to create another musical.
