The Drowsy Chaperone opens at Driftwood Players Apr 28

Friday, April 21, 2017

Edmonds Driftwood Players opens the musical The Drowsy Chaperone for a run from April 28 to May 14, 2017 at the Wade James Theatre in Edmonds.

The Drowsy Chaperone is a musical with book by Bob Martin and Don McKellar and music and lyrics by Lisa Lambert and Greg Morrison. It is a parody of American musical comedy of the 1920s.

The story centers around a middle-aged, musical theatre fan; as he plays the record of his favorite musical, the (fictional) 1928 hit The Drowsy Chaperone, and as he comments on the music, story, and actors, the show comes to life onstage.

The plot incorporates mistaken identities, dream sequences, an unflappable English butler, an absent-minded dowager, a Broadway impresario and his Follies production, comic gangsters, a ditzy chorine, a harried best man, and the "Drowsy" (i.e. "tipsy") Chaperone to a young actress about to be wed.

Brought to life on the stage at The Wade James Theatre, the very talented production team includes director by Pauls Macs with music direction by Mark Press and choreography by Carissa Meisner Smit and Elizabeth Posluns.

Performances: April 28 - May 14, 2017 
Thursday-Saturday at 8:00 pm, Sunday at 2:00 pm

The show was one of the best musicals I have seen at the Wade James Theatre in years. Good voices, a lot of young cast members, and everyone one on stage carries their own weight. A Must See...
