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, featuring one show-stopping song and dance number after another.
With the houselights down, a man in a chair appears on stage and 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 have the ingredients for an evening of madcap delight.
Hailed by New York Magazine as "The Perfect Broadway Musical," The Drowsy Chaperone is a masterful meta-musical, poking fun at all the tropes that characterize the musical theatre genre.
This show's suggested rating is PG and would be most enjoyed by those middle school aged and older!

*The Drowsy Chaperone includes a few purposefully racial and cultural insensitivities. This is not to offend our audience, but to point out just how ridiculous the references are and how far we have come (and, in some cases, how far we still need to go) from days when those kinds of comments, names, and attitudes were often acceptable. This does not in any way reflect the beliefs of the BHS Drama Club or its members, which is a place of inclusion and camaraderie.*
