Thursday, October 28, 2010

The Chattanooga State Theatre celebrates the glorious tradition of Broadway with the local premiere of the multiple Tony Award-winning musical The Drowsy Chaperone opening Friday, Nov. 12.

With tongue in cheek and toes in tap shoes, The Drowsy Chaperone promises family friendly fun for all as a long vanished musical comedy comes to life in one mild-mannered man’s apartment. The show won Tony Awards for its score by Lisa Lambert and Greg Morrison and book by Bob Martin and Don McKellar.

This production by Chattanooga State’s Professional Actor training program features Maggie Bradshaw, Jeffrey Benson Parker, Amy Henricks, Douglas May, Jeremy Wilkins, Ellen Poole, Amber Brown and Justin Wahlne as well as members of the Musical Theatre class.

The show runs Friday and Saturday, Nov. 12 and 13, at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday, Nov. 14, at 2:30 p.m.

Performances take place in the Humanities Theatre at Chattanooga State, 4501 Amnicola Highway.
