Winner of five Tony Awards, including Best Book and Best Original Score, The Drowsy Chaperone features one show-stopping song and dance number after another.
With the houselights down, a man in a chair appears on stage and puts on his favorite record: the cast recording of a fictitious 1928 musical. The recording comes to life and The Drowsy Chaperone begins as the man 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 classic story tells of Belle, a young woman in a provincial town, and the Beast who is really a young prince trapped under the spell of an enchantress. If the Beast can learn to love and be loved, the curse will end, and he will be transformed to his former self. But time is running out. If the Beast does not learn his lesson soon, he and his household will be doomed for all eternity.
Finally, many of our Spotlight Players are getting to perform songs from their most beloved musicals. That is the premise for this fun-filled evening of musical storytelling, as our very own Spotlight Players present songs they have always wanted to perform on stage but never had the chance to sing before. Created and directed by veteran Spotlight Player and Morehead State University Theater Graduate Kyrsten Daugherty, this show will kick off the Spotlight 2019/2020 season with a new experience for the audience and performers alike.
All students age 9-18 will be cast. (An age waiver may be requested for younger students and will be approved on a case by case basis.)
