Spindrift School of Performing Arts Proudly Presents:
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.
The Man in Chair, a mousy, agoraphobic Broadway fanatic, seeking to cure his “non-specific sadness”, listens to a recording of the fictional 1928 musical comedy, The Drowsy Chaperone. As he listens to this rare recording, the characters appear in his dingy apartment, and it is transformed into an impressive Broadway set with seashell footlights, sparkling furniture, painted backdrops, and glitzy costumes. Man in Chair provides a running commentary throughout the show from the stage, though he is on the audience side of the fourth wall, invisible to the players.
Direction by Matthew Keuter, Choreography by Director of Dance, Erica Lopez and Musical Direction by Director of Music, Osvaldo de Leon, this show promises to bring something both familiar and beloved, but new to Musical Theatre aficionados. We are excited to bring you our 5th Spring Show where we challenge our advanced teen actors with a complex book and score.
Only 8 shows over two weekends.
