cast album, the characters come to life in this hilarious musical farce
presented by Ovation Theatre ~ NCSA. Performances

and 19th at 2:00pm at the Howard Brubeck Theatre at Palomar College,

of five Tony Awards, including Best Book and Best Original Score, The Drowsy
Chaperone is a loving send-up of the Jazz Age musical, featuring one
show-stopping song and dance number after another.
The musical is directed by Pamela Laurent, with musical direction by
Scott Gregory, and choreography by Susie Dycus.
This delightful musical is enjoyable and appropriate for the entire
32-member cast, all hailing from San Diego North County, features Colin Gasperoni of Cardiff as the Man in Chair who appears on stage
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 (Rami
Ibrahim/Mariel Alexander), a bumbling best man (Jacob Morilak), a
desperate theatre producer (Dashiell Gregory), a not-so-bright hostess
(Anna Forgét) and her long-suffering man-servant (Grant Goates), two
gangsters posing as pastry chefs (Piper Bingham/Morgan Zuccaro), a
misguided Don Juan (Rocco Polanco), a spunky aviator (Jillian
Strattman), and an intoxicated chaperone (Janae Vigil) and you have
the ingredients for an evening of madcap delight.
by New York Magazine as "The Perfect Broadway Musical," The Drowsy Chaperone (score by Lisa Lambert and Greg Morrison, and
book by Bob Martin and Don McKellar) is a masterful meta-musical, poking fun at
all the tropes that characterize the musical theatre genre.
