Official PlazaCo Press Release – THE DROWSY CHAPERONE

Plaza Theatre Company to present the recent Broadway smash THE DROWSY CHAPERONE, opening March 16th

March 6th, 2012

Plaza Theatre Company is proud to announce the opening of THE DROWSY CHAPERONE on March 16th, 2012. The production will play Plaza’s newly renovated theatre at 111 S. Main Street in Cleburne, TX opening March 16th and playing through April 14th, 2012. The show will be the 52nd produced by Plaza Theatre Company since it’s inception in November of 2006.

This recent Tony Award winner for Best Musical on Broadway revolves around one musical theatre fan’s obsession with a fictional show from the 1920s – ‘The Drowsy Chaperone’. As he listens to the record, the characters come to life in his apartment. This is the story of a Broadway actress, Janet Van De Graaaff, who wants to marry the debonair Robert Martin and give up her stage career. Janet’s producer, Mr. Feldzieg, must stop the wedding because if she quits show business, he’ll lose his job! Further, gangsters threaten Mr. Feldzieg since if Janet quits, they lose their investment. All of this comes to life out of the imagination of ‘The Man in the Chair’ as 1920’s mayhem and mischief ensue. An old-fashioned laugh-a-minute crowd pleaser.

“We are thrilled to be among the first in North Texas to present this fabulous show”, said G. Aaron Siler, Plaza’s Director of Operations. “We are always looking for opportunities to present new material to our patrons and THE DROWSY CHAPERONE is the perfect blend of funny and fun. The show was a hit on Broadway and we know it’ll be a hit here at PlazaCo”.
