Rivertown Theaters for the Performing Arts presents: The Drowsy Chaperone


This five time Tony Award-winning musical is truly one of the best shows you may not have heard of, but will never forget once you experience it.  The Drowsy Chaperone tells the story of a modern-day musical theater addict, known simply as “Man in Chair” (Ricky Graham). To chase his blues away he drops the needle on his favorite LP – the 1928 musical comedy,” The Drowsy Chaperone.” From the crackle of his hi-fi, the musical magically bursts to life on-stage in his apartment. Telling the tale of a pampered Broadway starlet who wants to give up show business to get married, her producer who sets out to sabotage the nuptials, her chaperone, the debonair groom, the dizzy chorine, the Latin lover and a pair of gangsters who double as pastry chefs. A song & dance extravaganza for the whole family, The Drowsy Chaperone show will make you fall in love with musicals all over again. Rated PG
