A musical within a comedy
Music and Lyrics by Lisa Lambert & Greg Morrison
Book by Bob Martin & Don McKellar
August 2 – 19, 2012
A multiple Tony Award winner, The Drowsy Chaperone pays tribute to the Jazz-Age shows of the 1920s and their power to transport us into a dazzling fantasy and to lift our spirits in hard times. It all begins when a die-hard musical-theater fan plays his favorite cast album on his turntable, and the musical literally bursts to life in his living room. We are swept into the glamorous and hilarious tale of a reluctant stage star bride, a groom on skates, a tap-dancing best man, a womanizing gigolo, gangsters posing as bakers, and an intoxicated chaperone! You’ll still be smiling long after the final bow. Finally, a musical about people who adore musicals!
Performances held at the Deb Fennell Auditorium, 9000 SW Durham Road, Tigard.
