The Drowsy Chaperone

2021 TBA

Jazz age fun in our summer musical!

This show was originally scheduled for July 9-12, 16-18 2020. It has been canceled and we are hoping to perform it in 2021. Stay tuned for more updates!

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. The show features 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.

Hailed by New York Magazine as “The Perfect Broadway Musical,” The Drowsy Chaperone will be a delightful production of madcap fun.

Show times

Original times for this show were July 9-12, 16-18 2020. We are hoping to reschedule to summer 2021.
