The Drowsy Chaperone
Los Altos Youth Theatre presents a 3-week virtual youth production opportunity for young adults ages 13 to 19. During this production, participants with remotely rehearse and present for a general live streaming audience the hit musical, The Drowsy Chaperone. This virtual production is limited to 24 participants.
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.
