Five times Tony Award winner (including Best Book and Best Score), THE DROWSY CHAPERONE is a madcap romp that features an energetic 1920s pastiche score and a book filled with hilarious one-liners and classic musical comedy gags. It centres on the ‘Man in the Chair’ who invites us to hear his beloved Original Cast Recording of his favourite musical from the 1920’s entitled The Drowsy Chaperone. As he plays the record, the show springs to life and we find ourselves in a cock-eyed world of romance and intrigue as played by handsomely debonair actors and fabulously glamorous actresses, complete with an aeroplane and an ongoing commentary from our devoted ‘Man in the Chair.’
Be prepared to be taken on a journey of joy, laughter and sheer happiness as CLOC gives you the opportunity to discover this cleverly original, delightful and rarely performed musical gem.
Originally presented on Broadway in 2006, The Drowsy Chaperone has enjoyed major productions around the world including a sell-out 2010 season by the Melbourne Theatre Company starring Geoffrey Rush. THE DROWSY CHAPERONE offers a sentimental, sweet, hilarious and sometimes surprising look at the impact that musical theatre can have on a person – and the pure, unbridled joy it can bring.
