The Drowsy Chaperone

The Drowsy Chaperone boldly addresses a great unspoken desire in all of our hearts; to be entertained. If you've ever sat in a dark theatre and thought, "Dear Lord in heaven please let it be good," this is the show for you! It all 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 the brazen Broadway starlet trying to find, and keep, her true love.

Shows Friday, March 21 and Saturday, March 22 at 7:00 pm in the IHS Auditorium.

For tickets or more information please call Mrs. Schatt at 216-642-5860 Ext. 1222.
