    In The Drowsy Chaperone, a fanatic named Man in Chair presents a rare cast recording of his favorite show, The Drowsy Chaperone. The Man in Chair plays the record, and the musical comedy comes to life, taking everyone back in time to the fictional 1928 musical. During the trip, there will be marriage, dreams, dimwitted gangsters, and, yes, even a drowsy chaperone.

    Bob Martin and Don McKellar created the Tony Award winning Drowsy Chaperone, with music and lyric contributions from Lisa Lambert and Greg Morrison.  The Derby Dinner show cast includes Jim Hesselman as Man in Chair, Georgette Kleier and Michelle Johnson as Mrs. Tottendale, Kevin Crain as Underling, Jeffrey Funaro as Robert Martin, Matthew Brennan as George, John Payonk as Feldzieg, and Colette Delaney as Kitty.

    More information on The Drowsy Chaperone, the children's theatre, or any concerts can be found at the Derby Dinner Playhouse website.
