An asocial musical theatre fan known only as ‘Man In Chair’, announces that he is feeling “a little blue”. Attempting to get out of his funk, he invites the audience to join him as he drops the needle to play a vintage record — yes, record – of his favorite musical, an apparent 1928 Broadway hit, The Drowsy Chaperone. The fun happens as the recorded show and it’s cast of zany characters come to vivid life in his dingy apartment.
Scugog Choral Society performs The Drowsy Chaperone, a Canadian-born musical comedy which debuted in 1998 at The Rivoli in Toronto as part of the Toronto Fringe Festival and opened on Broadway on 1 May 2006. The show won FIVE Tony Awards including Best Book and Best Score in a Musical!
A newer offering only recently made available to community theatre groups, this hilarious “musical within a comedy” has a fresh, light and lively feel and has had major productions in Toronto, Los Angeles, New York, London, and Japan, as well as two North American tours.
