Villanova Theatre Presents: The Drowsy Chaperone
A Philadelphia Premiere
November 6 – December 2, 2012
music and lyrics by LISA LAMBERT and GREG MORRISON
Book by BOB MARTIN and DON MCKELLAR
Directed by REV. PETER M. DONOHUE, OSA, PhD
Villanova University President (and Barrymore Award-winning director) Father Peter Donohue returns to Villanova Theatre with the Philadelphia premiere of this delightful musical confection. The darling of the 2006 Tony Awards, this hilarious show-within-a-show begins when a die-hard musical theatre fan puts on his favorite record – the cast album of the (fictional) 1920s musical The Drowsy Chaperone. From the scratchy crackle of his phonograph, a madcap musical magically bursts to life, transforming his humble apartment into a dazzling world of song, dance and comic ingenuity. Deft, original, and seriously side-splitting.
