The Drowsy Chaperone

Shepparton Theatre Arts Group

John Head stars as the Man in Chair, a die-hard musical theatre fan, who welcomes us into his dreary living room. He drops the needle on his all-time favourite album, The Drowsy Chaperone, an outrageously funny musical. It bursts into life complete with starlets, gangsters, chorus girls and all manner of mayhem. It is a lavish musical with vaudeville gags and Charlestons galore! The audience is introduced to Janet van de Graaff, a young Broadway starlet about to give up her career for wedded bliss to the handsome Robert Martin. But between Janet's inebriated Chaperone the oblivious hostess Mrs. Tottendale the egomaniacal lothario Aldolpho and Janet's scheming producer, Feldzieg, there are more than enough hijinks to go around!
