Auditions for The Drowsy Chaperone This year we are excited to announce auditions for The Drowsy Chaperone. An epic “musical within a comedy”, this brilliantly funny Tony Award-winner is a celebration of the American musical that harkens back to the jazz age of the 1920s. When a loyal fan shares a rare recording of his favorite musical, the characters come to life in an exciting tale of love and delight that leaves audiences breathless. A wedding, gangsters disguised as pastry chefs, and a drunk chaperone are just a few of the ingredients in this delicious farcical treat that is fun for the whole family. Auditions will be a two day process. Please read all information on this page. OPEN TO ALL KHS STUDENTS!
