Event Description:
Cleveland High School Theater presents its spring musical, "The Drowsy Chaperone," under the direction of Don Markham with Jim Burton, orchestra conductor, and Melissa Dasher, choir director. When wealthy widow Mrs. Tottendale hosts the wedding of the year, she gets a lot more than a write-up in the society pages: Janet Van de Graaf, glittering starlet of Feldzieg’s Follies, is leaving the stage for love, a turn of events that horrifies the angry and anxious Mr. Feldzieg, whose chief investor has sent two gangsters disguised as pastry chefs to make sure he stops the wedding. Hiring Aldolpho, a Latin lover more vain than virile, to seduce the bride, is unsuccessful as Janet’s chaperone, a drunken diva, gets herself mistaken for the bride and seduced in Janet’s place. It is left to eager best man, George, to quite by accident break up the happy pair when he sends groom Robert Martin out to the garden, blindfolded and in roller skates. Will there be a happy wedding or not? This magical piece of theatre is playful and heartfelt. It contains music of the 1920s. The music features a chirpy jazz-age score by Lisa Lambert and Greg Morrison, and a lively, clever book by Bob Martin and Don McKellar, both of whom were Tony winners in 2006. The score boasts such tunes as the scenery-chomping “Show Off,” the sizzling and silly “I Am Aldolpho” and the double-entendre laden “Toledo Surprise.”
