The nationally recognized, award-winning Troy Theatre Ensemble presents its performances of The Drowsy Chaperon starting this weekend.
This light-hearted, tuneful, musical comedy is actually two shows in one. The narrator, a character only identified as “Man in Chair,” finds an escape from his ordinary life and drab apartment by listening to his favorite Broadway cast recordings. He plays for us, the audience, his 1928 original recording of his favorite musical, “The Drowsy Chaperone.”
As the record plays, the story materializes all around him in his apartment. At times ridiculously funny, the show is marked with a comic and charming book, with songs and dances that entertain, amuse, and impress.
Featuring a cast, crew and orchestra of more than 90 Troy High students, The Drowsy Chaperone is a very funny and entertaining “musical within a comedy.” A multiple Tony Award-winning 2006 show, it brought a third Tony Award nomination for Troy High School alum, Sutton Foster.
All shows are presented in the . Tickets are priced at $13 for adults, and $8 for senior citizens (60 and over) and students (under 18). All seats are reserved.
