Audition Details


The Drowsy Chaperone


Music and Lyrics by  Lisa Lambert and Greg Morrison
Book by  Bob Martin and Don McKellar

One Act, Book Musical, Rated PG

A rare combination of unprecedented originality and blinding talent, THE DROWSY CHAPERONE boldly addresses a great unspoken desire in all of our hearts: to be entertained.

With the houselights down, a man in a chair appears on stage and he 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've got a show soup dense with delicious delight!
