All sixteen actors on stage kept the audience amused and intrigued with their acting, dancing and singing as they made The Drowsy Chaperon a great show for the almost ending of 2014. This is a musical within the dreams of a man that is a treat for the eyes & ears with the costumes, scenery, choreography and lights.
The night progressed with the recorded music and the daydreaming of Joel Newome (the narrator as the ‘Man in Chair’), with his Mister Rogers’ sweater and whimsical storytelling. You’ll love the “freeze frames” throughout both acts, as the cast pretends to skip-a-beat with the record.
Terri Dixon (Drowsy Chaperone) and the cast get a “well done” for their rendition of “As We Stumble Along”. Remember shoe skates, well (Robert) Brian Beach remembers four wheels and toe stops as he skates across the stage during one of his numbers and then tap dances with (George) Chris Warren Murry in the number “Cold Feet” – a great duo.
Katie Nettle (Kitty) and the two (Gangsters) Shain Stroff and Mel NashII, memorize the audience with their song and dance numbers. Get ready to hear and see “Show Off” and “Message From a Nightingale”.
Alejadro Rodriquez (Adolpho) what can we say but…”Adolpho”. His Latin accent and charm will sweep you away.
Lisa Valdini (Mrs. Tottendale) and Matthew J. Campbell (Underling) do a terrific soft-shoe routine while singing “Love Is Always Lovely”.
The entire Ensemble receives rave reviews for a stunning presentation that make for glorious and glamourous evening. “Hats off” to Producer/Director Tod Booth, for another great show that is well done
