Oceanside CA— MiraCosta College’s Theatre Department is proud to present, ‘The Drowsy Chaperone,’ a musical-inside-a-comedy is for those who love musical theatre and those who don’t care for it at all! The play opens March 6 at the MiraCosta College Theatre, located 1 Barnard Drive, Oceanside. Tracy Williams will direct.
“The Drowsy Chaperone” begins with “Man in Chair,” alone in his shabby apartment pining for the good old days of Broadway when suddenly his favorite 1920’s musical bursts to life in his very own living room. Audiences are instantly immersed in the glamorous, hilarious tale of a celebrity bride and her outrageous wedding day, complete with thrills and surprises that will leave them wanting more. “Everything always works out in musicals,” says Man in Chair. “In the real world, nothing ever works out and the only people who burst into song are hopelessly deranged.”
The cast features Andrew Layton as Man in Chair. Other cast members are Matthew Abosamra, Melissa Bonilla, Timothy Cabal, Travis Charron, Rachel Dillon, Kyle Dowdy, Steve Garretson, Rachael Hodge, Janey Hurley, Madison Lewis, Reden Magtira, Jason Marks, Brent Perkins, Joseph Prete, David Sherlock, Ala Tiatia, Christopher Walters, Maggie Willett and Lainey Woo.
