'The Drowsy Chaperone' playing through Feb. 1

Family-friendly production won five Tony Awards

Tri-Valley Repertory Theatre opened its latest production, "The Drowsy Chaperone," last weekend and it will continue through Feb. 1 at the Bankhead Theater in Livermore.

This most celebrated musical of the 2006 Broadway season tells the story of a modern day musical theater addict known simply as "Man in Chair." To chase his blues away he drops the needle on his favorite LP -- the 1928 musical comedy, "The Drowsy Chaperone. "

From the crackle of his hi-fi, the musical magically bursts to life onstage telling the tale of a pampered Broadway starlet who wants to give up show business to get married, her producer who sets out to sabotage the nuptials, her chaperone, the debonair groom, the dizzy chorine, the Latin lover and a pair of gangsters who double as pastry chefs. Man in Chair's love of "The Drowsy Chaperone" speaks to anyone who has ever been transported by the theater.

"The Drowsy Chaperone" addresses a great unspoken desire in everyone's heart: to be entertained. This is the show for anyone who has ever sat in a dark theater and thought, "Dear Lord in heaven, please let it be good."

Be entertained!
