Edmonds Heights K-12 (formerly Edmonds Homeschool Resource Center) is presenting the musical “The Drowsy Chaperone” Jan. 21-29.
“The Drowsy Chaperone” tells the story of a modern day musical theater addict known simply as “Man in Chair.” To chase his blues away, he drops the needle on his favorite LP – the 1928 musical comedy “The Drowsy Chaperone .” The musical magically bursts to life on stage, telling the tale of a pampered Broadway starlet who wants to give up show business to get married, her producer who sets out to sabotage the nuptials, her chaperone, the debonair groom, the dizzy chorine, the Latin lover and a pair of gangsters who double as pastry chefs. Man in Chair’s love of “The Drowsy Chaperone” speaks to anyone who has ever been transported by the theater.
“The Drowsy Chaperone” is directed by Shileah Corey, choreographed by Gabriel Corey and conducted by Michael Corey, and features a cast of 35 talented actors, ages 14-18. Performances are Fridays and Saturdays, Jan. 21, 22, 28 and 29, at 7 p.m., with matinee performances Sunday, Jan. 23 and Saturday, Jan. 29 at 2 p.m. Tickets are $5 and can be purchased at the door. All performances are at Edmonds Heights K-12, 23200 100th Ave. W. Call 425-431-7840 for information.
