2016 Spring Musical

The Drowsy Chaperone

Music and Lyrics by Lisa Lambert and Greg Morrison
Book by Bob Martin and Don McKellar

Winner of five 2006 Tony Awards, including Best Book and Best Original Score, The Drowsy Chaperone celebrates and pokes fun at the stereotypes and theatrical conventions of Jazz Age American musicals of the 1920s. Billed as "a musical within a comedy," The Drowsy Chaperone centers on a reclusive musical theater fan’s obsession with a fictional 1928 musical comedy, The Drowsy Chaperone. As he listens to the recording, the colorful characters come to life in his dingy apartment and reenact the show.

The Spring Musical will be fully staged and performed with a live student pit band in the Main Theater.

The 2016 Spring Musical Performance Dates will be Friday April 22 at 7:30 p.m., Saturday April 23 at 7:30 p.m., and Sunday, April 24 at 2 p.m..
