The Drowsy Chaperone

Our 2015 production was the Broadway and West End hit The Drowsy Chaperone.

With the houselights down, a woman in a chair appears on stage and puts on her favourite record: the cast recording of a fictitious 1928 musical. The recording comes to life and The Drowsy Chaperone begins as the woman in the chair looks on. Mix in two lovers on the eve of their wedding, a bumbling best man, a desperate theatre producer, a not-so-bright hostess, two gangsters posing as pastry chefs, a misguided Don Juan and an intoxicated chaperone, and you have the ingredients for an evening of madcap delight.

The score features songs including As We Stumble Along, I Am Aldolpho, I Do I Do In The Sky, A Message From A Nightingale and Lovely Is Always Lovely In The End

The production raised over £530 which was donated to Prostate Cancer UK who aim to raise awareness and increase research with the ambition of reducing the number of deaths from Prostate Cancer.
