    The Drowsy Chaperone

    Presented by at Calderwood Pavilion at the BCA

    May 6 - June 19, 2011


    The Drowsy Chaperone


    Mayhem, mix-ups and a gay (in the old sense of the word) wedding marks the high-spirited hijinx of The Drowsy Chaperone, winner of five 2006 Tony Awards.

    The fun begins when a die-hard musical fan plays his favorite Broadway cast recording, a 1928 smash hit called " The Drowsy Chaperone." Suddenly the man finds himself immersed in the glamorous, hilarious tale of a celebrity bride and her uproarious wedding day, complete with thrills and surprises that take both the cast and audience soaring to the rafters.
