This was the first time we had ever seen The Drowsy Chaperone and we were impressed.
The Drowsy Chaperone is a musical performance. It was performed by teens from the ages of 13 to 19 who are enrolled in the year-long Intensive and Pre-Professional Musical Theatre programs. The Drowsy Chaperone is directed by Andy Toth, with musical direction by Erin Hope-Goldsmith, and choreography by Erika Babins.
The play is entertaining with the story line centering around characters from the record The Drowsy Chaperone coming to life when the record is played. It is a great play to see. The music was wonderful and the performers did an excellent job performing. To top everything off, the choreography was enjoyable to watch and the acting was top notch. Overall it was a great performance and job well done by the Musical Theatre program students.
The Drowsy Chaperone was the second Arts Umbrella Series performance we saw. We also saw A Fairy Tale Review, which was spectacular.
I would have loved to have seen more in the Arts Umbrella series and if it returns, I will be sure to bring my family to see more of the performances.
