The KPAC Players will be presenting a rousing five-time Tony Award-winning musical later this month.
“The Drowsy Chaperone” will be presented at 7 p.m. June 24 and at 3 p.m. June 25 at the Krider Performing Arts Center.
James Matthew Wyatt is the director of this comedic romp for the whole family to enjoy.
The musical won Tonys for Best Book and Best Original Score, among others. It’s a loving send-up of the Jazz Age musical, featuring one show-stopping song and dance number after another.
With the house lights 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 theingredients for an evening of madcap delight.
Tickets are $12 for adults, $10 for senior adults ages 65 and older, and $7 for youths ages 3-17.
Tickets are available now at KriderPAC.com or at the Paris Civic Center.
