The Drowsy Chaperone

May 5–21, 2017

The Ellicott Creek Playhouse


Book by Bob Martin and Don McKellar
Music and Lyrics by Lisa Lambert and Greg Morrison

This "Musical Within a Comedy" makes its NRTG stage debut after winning 5 Tony awards and 8 Drama Desk awards in 2006 .  You'll have a hard time deciding on which memorable character is your favorite as they all shine in song and humor - an eager groom, a reluctant bride, a forgetful hostess, a tipsy chaperone, a European Lothario, gangsters as pastry chefs, and many more -- all presented by a lover of musicals who welcomes you into the apartment where it all comes to life!  You'll leave the theatre humming the award-winning songs including "Fancy Dress", "As We Stumble Along", "Toledo Surprise", and many more!

Directed by Carolyn Quigley
Musical Direction by Donald M. Jenzcka
