About the Drowsy Chaperone:

The Drowsy Chaperone is a parody of American musical comedy of the 1920's. The story concerns a middle-aged, asocial musical theater fan; as he plays the record of his favorite musical, the (fictional) 1928 hit The Drowsy Chaperone, the show comes to life onstage as he wryly comments on the music, story, and actors.

This year's production incorporates the talents of over 100 La Salle students, and more that 40 young ladies from The Mount, GMA, and other area public schools. The ensemble cast showcases the talents of seniors Jack Gimpel, Patrick Mizzoni, Kevin Gill, Jacob Weyand, Matthew Harkins, and Ryan Cramer, along with Dylan DeBrakeleer (Conducting), Martin Csongradi (Sound), John Santoro and Ben LeMay (Stage Managers).

The show originated in 1997, when Don McKellar, Lisa Lambert, and Greg Morrison and several friends created a spoof of old musicals for the stag party of Bob Martin and Janet van de Graff.

The spoof was so well received that the team decided to "re-shape" the show for The Toronto Fringe Festival, where with the assistance of Bob Martin the character of "the man in the chair" was added to serve as a narrator and commentator for the piece. Ironically Bob Martin was cast into the role; it swept the festival; and became a huge success first in small Toronto theater, then in legitimate theater, and in 2006 backers came together to bring the show to Broadway. Winner of six Tony Awards and seven Drama Desk Awards, including Best musical, the show ran for 674 performances on Broadway before being transported to London's West end for an equally successful run.
