Winner of five Tony Awards including Best Book and Best Original Score, THE DROWSY CHAPERONE is a satirical Jazz-Age musical full of huge characters and even bigger laughs.

The show parodies the great musical comedies of the 1920s, and is set up as a show within a show. ‘Man in Chair’ plays and obsesses over his vinyl record, and we see his recording of the fictitious musical ‘The Drowsy Chaperone’ come to life. Cue two lovers the night before their wedding, a useless best man, a down on his luck theatre producer, some gangsters, a hostess who isn’t the sharpest tool in the shed, a Latin Lothario and the intoxicated chaperone creating the perfect mix of madness and hilarity.

Hailed as ‘The Perfect Broadway Musical’, and a true hidden gem of musical theatre, THE DROWSY CHAPERONE’ is full of fun and gives every actor the chance to really ‘show off’.
