Bay Theatre Players present: The Drowsy Chaperone

Bay Theatre Players first major production for 2021, The Drowsy Chaperone, will open to much excitement and anticipation on 9 April 2021, after more than 12 months of the Playhouse Theatre being closed! This musical comedy of the 1920’s, is full of mishap, mayhem and mistaken identities that will keep you laughing to the very end.

The Drowsy Chaperone follows a reclusive Broadway fanatic, known as The Man in The Chair, seeking to solve his “non-specific sadness” through listening to his favourite 1920’s Broadway musical, The Drowsy Chaperone. As he listens, his humble New York apartment is transformed into a 1920’s Broadway stage, where the characters come to life in front of our eyes.

The stage erupts into fantastic musical numbers and show-stopping dance routines, and a laugh a minute!

Tickets are on sale now at – get in quickly before they are all sold out! The Drowsy Chaperone, directed by Candy Burgess, will open on Friday 9 April 2021, for an 18-show season until Saturday 1 May 2021.

The Drowsy Chaperone is a book by Bob Martin and Don McKellar, music and lyrics by Lisa Lambert and Greg Morrison.

Above: Robert Martin: The groom-to-be. He is the token 1920s leading man – debonair, dashing, and a matinee idol. He is cheesy, cheerful, and optimistic but will he make it to the wedding. Best man George is certainly doing his best to ensure it all goes off without a hitch.
