Welcome to the Tacoma & Pierce County Area Theater. We are proud to share information about local theaters that bring you riveting performances, musical productions that entertain, and stories to share with your family and friends.
Wake up you sleepy heads . . . the Drowsy Chaperone is coming!!!
This musical is a laugh riot. I've got about twenty people coming.
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 theater 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.
You'll see singing and dancing and even tap dancing. There's an aviatrix, a fantastic one-of-a-kind "Latin Lover," gangsters and . . . wait for it . . . wait for it . . . a Toledo Surprise!
"I've seen this production at the Tacoma Musical Playhouse before (it was excellent!) as well as the Seattle Musical Theatre and I am just thrilled that TMP is bringing this back." - Don Doman
