Casting Call!  The Drowsy Chaperone:


Come be a part of this delightful show within a show that  is sure to have audiences tapping their toes along to all the snazzy jazz numbers and classic 1920's musical type songs we all know and love. The Drowsy Chaperone is a musical that revolves around a lonely, melancholy man in his apartment as he tries to cheer himself up by listening to a recording of his favorite 20's musical. Watch as his apartment magically transforms into the set of this vivacious musical and the characters come to life. Lying, scandal and deception ensue as the plot of the show within our show thickens. This five time Tony award winner is sure to keep you on the edge of your seat!
