Parowan High School wakes up audiences with ‘The Drowsy Chaperone’

PAROWAN – Join Parowan High School for its production of “The Drowsy Chaperone,” continuing Friday, Saturday and Monday at Parowan High School, 168 N. Main St. in Parowan.

Presented by the Parowan High School Performing Arts Department in conjunction with Music Theater International, “The Drowsy Chaperone” is the story of a die-hard theater fan who gets a big surprise: When he plays his favorite cast album, the characters come to life!

With music and lyrics by Lisa Lambert and Greg Morrison, “The Drowsy Chaperone” is a hilarious musical farce that has won five Tony Awards, including “Best Book” and “Best Original Score.”

With the houselights down, a man in a chair appears onstage and puts on his favorite record: the cast recording of a fictitious 1928 musical. The recording comes to life, and “The Drowsy Chaperone” begins as the man in the chair looks on. Mix in two lovers on the eve of their wedding, a bumbling best man, a desperate theater producer, a not-so-bright hostess, two gangsters posing as pastry chefs, a misguided Don Juan and an intoxicated chaperone, and you have the ingredients for an evening of madcap delight.

Tickets for “The Drowsy Chaperone” can be purchased at the door. They are $5 for adults and $3 for students.
