EDISON — “The Drowsy Chaperone,” a comedy with a musical theater theme, will be presented at Middlesex County College. It’ll be Thursday through Saturday, March 24-26 at 8 p.m.; Thursday-Saturday, March 31-April 2 at 8 p.m. and Sunday, April 3 at 2 p.m.
The show will be in the Performing Arts Center on the Edison campus; tickets are $12.
The curtain rises on a present-day musical theatre fanatic eager to tell you about his favorite Broadway musical – “The Drowsy Chaperone.” He’s the ultimate theatre fan and “Drowsy” is his guilty pleasure.
As he begins listening to the rare cast recording, the show cleverly and magically blooms to life, telling the hilarious tale of a pampered Broadway starlet and her debonair fiancé, an overzealous producer, a dizzy chorine, the Latin lover and a couple of bumbling gangsters. Ruses are played. Hi-jinks occur. And the plot spins everyone into musical comedy euphoria.
The play is directed by Art Neill.

Josh Bellan and Katie Hilosky (Kendall Park)
