New Canaan High School’s Winter Musical “The Drowsy Chaperone”

March 14 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

The Drowsy Chaperone is a delightful celebration of musical theater, ingeniously wrapped in a comedy that parodies and pays homage to the Golden Age musicals of the 1920s. The show’s narrator, a true musical theater lover, shares his favorite record, “The Drowsy Chaperone,” with the audience. The show miraculously springs to life in his apartment, blending fantasy with reality. Its self-aware humor, catchy tunes, intricate dance numbers, and eccentric characters (a bride who’s giving up the stage for love, her debonair bridegroom, a harried producer, jovial gangsters posing as pastry chefs, an eccentric wedding host, a Latin lothario, an aviatrix, and the Drowsy Chaperone) offer heartfelt moments that emphasize the transformative power of theater, making it a must-see for both seasoned theater-goers and newcomers alike. Bring the whole family! Performances are March 14-16 at 7 pm, with a 2 pm matinee on March 16. All in the NCHS Auditorium.
