NEW WILMINGTON, Pa. - Theatre Westminster will present The Drowsy Chaperone Oct. 31-Nov 4 in Beeghly Theater.
The multi-Tony Award winning musical premiered on Broadway in 2006. The story begins when a die-hard musical-theatre fan plays his favorite cast album on his turntable, and the musical literally bursts to life in his living room, telling the rambunctious tale of a brazen Broadway starlet trying to find, and keep, her true love.
Curtain time Wednesday-Saturday is 7:30 p.m.; Sunday's matinee is at 2:30 p.m. Reservations can be made online by following the "ticket reserve" link at www.westminster.edu/drama. Prices for general admission adults are $15, and senior citizens and non-Westminster students are $10.
Terry Jachimiak and Josh Scott, a sophomore communication studies and theatre major, developed a memorable set design for the characters of The Drowsy Chaperone. Reaching across multiple disciplines, the pair utilized techniques such as critical thinking and abstract research to create a world for the actors and actresses to live in. Jachimiak shared takes us into the collaboration design process with his students where the liberal arts mission at Westminster becomes a hands-on experience.
