The Drowsy Chaperone Will Woo and Wow Audiences, as It Makes Its Way to the Stratford Playhouse

Join us at Stratford High Playhouse for a chance to see the witty production of The Drowsy Playhouse on Friday, January 31st!

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. When a diehard theatre fan plays his favorite cast album, the characters come to life in this hilarious musical farce.

With the house lights 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. Because of its many featured roles and accessible script, The Drowsy Chaperone is a hit with audiences of all ages.

The Drowsy Playhouse will make its run on the Stratford High Playhouse through February 8th. Tickets are on sale now at www.shsplayhouse.org.
