The Davis Musical Theater Company presents their annual New Years Eve gala featuring a preview of The Drowsy Chaperone, followed by a full-catered buffet dinner (appetizers, rolls and butter, salad, chicken marsal, tri tip carving station, hot vegetables, mashed potatoes and gravy,vegetarian pasta, dessert, champagne, sparkling cider, coffee, tea, lemonade) Fun includes dancing to a live DJ and party favors.
The Drowsy Chaperone is a lavish 1920s musical with vaudeville gags and Charlestons galore! Robert Martin is set to marry Janet van de Graaf, a young Broadway starlet giving up performing. But between Janet’s inebriated Chaperone, the oblivious hostess Mrs. Tottendale, the egomaniacal Lothario, Adolpho, and Janet’s scheming producer, Feldzieg, there are more than enough hijinks to go around! Of course, that’s not the musical we’re putting on. Instead, prepare for The Drowsy Chaperone, which tells of the eccentric and melancholy Man In Chair, who puts on a record of his favorite musical, The Drowsy Chaperone, and imagines the show springing to life in his apartment. Through his eyes, you’ll learn why some of the gags performed have been distorted by historical context, how some of the characters we’re seeing are products of questionable acting talent, and what the truth is behind the darkness that haunts the Man in Chair.
