Wake up, people! ‘The Drowsy Chaperone’ comes to SM East starting Thursday
You crazy web kids out there probably think you invented the concept of self-referencial “meta-ness,” don’t you? Don’t you!
Wellsirs, I invite you to visit SM East starting this Thursday to take a virtual trip back in time — all the way back to the ancient year 1998 — when “The Drowsy Chaperone,” this year’s SM East musical, first debuted.
The musical tells the story of a musical theatre fan who plays a recording of his favorite musical, “The Drowsy Chaperone.” Dig?
Anydoodle, theatre department chair Brian Cappello says there’s something for everyone to enjoy.
“It’s lots of fun, fast-paced, and full of catchy songs and lots of dancing,” Cappello said. “Fun for the whole family!”
Showings are Thursday, Friday and Saturday at 7 p.m. with a 2 p.m. matinee performance at 2 p.m. Saturday. Tickets are $10 and all seats are reserved. The box office opens an hour before show time. SM East students can purchase tickets during lunch period on the north ramp.
