Ladies and gentlemen, gather around and let me tell you about one of the most uproarious and beloved musicals of all time - The Drowsy Chaperone.
This musical is a hilarious homage to the Golden Age of musical theatre, set in the 1920s. It's a love letter to the joy and magic of musicals, and it's guaranteed to make you tap your feet, sing along, and laugh until your sides hurt.
The story follows a die-hard musical theatre fan, known only as "Man in Chair," who decides to cure his blues by listening to his favorite musical, The Drowsy Chaperone. As he puts on the record, the musical magically comes to life in his living room, and we're whisked away on a zany adventure.
The plot revolves around the impending marriage of a Broadway starlet, Janet Van de Graaff, and a dashing groom, Robert Martin. However, the wedding plans are threatened by a scheming producer, gangsters disguised as pastry chefs, a ditzy chorus girl, and of course, the titular drowsy chaperone, who is more interested in getting drunk than in keeping an eye on the bride.
But it's not just the madcap plot that makes The Drowsy Chaperone a crowd-pleaser. It's also the music and the characters. The score, by Lisa Lambert and Greg Morrison, is a toe-tapping, earworm-inducing delight, with catchy tunes like "Show Off," "As We Stumble Along," and "I Am Aldolpho" that will stay with you long after the show is over.
And the characters? They're a riot. From the scene-stealing Adolpho, a self-proclaimed ladies' man who can't seem to get anything right, to the lovable buffoon Robert, who tap-dances his way into your heart, to the wisecracking but endearing chaperone, who just wants to have a good time, there's not a dull moment in this show.
But don't just take my word for it. The Drowsy Chaperone was a critical and commercial success when it premiered on Broadway in 2006, winning five Tony Awards, including Best Book and Best Original Score. It's been produced all over the world, from London to Australia to South Korea, and it's a favorite of amateur and professional theatres alike.
So what are you waiting for? Get your tickets to Wyong Musical Theatre's The Drowsy Chaperone now and join the fun. I promise you won't regret it.

Winner of five Tony Awards, including Best Book and Best Original Score, The Drowsy Chaperone is a loving send-up of the Jazz Age musical, featuring 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.
