‘Drowsy Chaperone’ hits the stage for 4 shows

Feb. 2-4 – at Prisco Center

The Fox Valley Park District’s Winter Stage production of The Drowsy Chaperone will be performed Feb. 2, 3 and 4 at the Prisco Community Center Theatre, 150 W. Illinois Ave., in Aurora.

Show times are 7 p.m. on Friday (Feb. 2), 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. on Saturday (Feb. 3) and 2 p.m. on Sunday (Feb. 4). Tickets are $10 in advance, or $12 at the door. To reserve specific seating, order your tickets online here or visit the Prisco Community Center.

Winner of five Tony Awards, including Best Book and Best Original Score, The Drowsy Chaperone features 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.
