Show Information

Winner of five Tony Awards, including Best Book and Best Original Score, The Drowsy Chaperone is a loving send-up of the Jazz Age musical, featuring one show-stopping song and dance number after another.

With the houselights down, a man in a chair appears on stage and puts on his favorite record: the cast recording of a fictitious 1928 musical. The recording comes to life and The Drowsy Chaperone begins as the man in the chair looks on. Mix in two lovers on the eve of their wedding, a bumbling best man, a desperate theatre producer, a not-so-bright hostess, two gangsters posing as pastry chefs, a misguided Don Juan and an intoxicated chaperone, and you have the ingredients for an evening of madcap delight.

Female Roles

  • Janet – Star of Feldzieg’s Follies who is conflicted about giving up her life on the stage to marry Robert Martin. Attractive, vivacious, outgoing personality. She loves being the center of attention and is the consummate 1920s starlet. Must be able to move well on stage. Vocal Range: Alto with big belt (G3-E5)
  • The Drowsy Chaperone – Janet’s slightly irresponsible confidante. Care-free, often because she is incapacitated. An experienced “woman of the world” who couldn’t care less what the world thinks. A melodramatic diva to be reckoned with who gleefully chews the scenery and steals just about every scene she is in. Great comedic role. Vocal Range: Alto with strong belt (F3-D5)
  • Mrs. Tottendale - A wealthy widow and host of the wedding. She is flighty, eccentric, often times forgetful, and funny. She is absolutely charming, bubbly and oblivious to the confusion her behavior generates in other people. Vocal Range: Alto character voice (G3-Db5)
  • Kitty - 1920s dumb blonde chorine. She is Mr. Feldzieg’s companion and will do anything to be a leading lady. Vocal Range: Soprano comedic belt (Bb3-F5)
  • Trix - The brave and brash female aviator. She is sassy, sleek and a take charge kind of gal. Vocal Range: Alto (Ab3-Eb5)

Male Roles

  • Man in the Chair – Musical theatre aficionado who mourns the end of the Golden Era. He narrates the show as he listens to the record on vinyl. Leading pivotal role with many monologues. Vocal Range: Baritone
  • Robert Martin – The groom-to-be who is deeply in love with Janet. He is the token 1920s leading man – debonair, dashing, and a matinee idol. He is cheesy, cheerful, and optimistic. Must be able to tap dance and roller skate. Vocal Range: Tenor (C3 – Ab4)
  • Aldolpho – Latin lothario. A womanizing cad who is very impressed with himself. He is confident, vigorous, and a buffoon. Vaudeville-style acting and fake Spanish/Italian accent required. Should have great comic timing. Vocal Range: Bass/Baritone w/great falsetto (A#2-G4)
  • Underling - Mrs. Tottendale’s unflappable butler and manservant. He is stoic, dry-humored and sarcastic. Vocal range: Tenor character voice (Ab2-G4)
  • Mr. Feldzieg - Harried producer who will do anything to stop the wedding in order to keep Janet in the Follies. He is nervous, sarcastic, impatient, overbearing, and insensitive. Vocal Range: Baritone (Db3-Db4)
  • George - Robert’s anxious best man. He is loyal, sincere, and nervous. Makes looking out for Robert’s interests his top priority so that the wedding will come off without a hitch. Must be able to tap. Vocal Range: Tenor (F3-Bb4)
  • Gangsters #1 & #2 - Two jovial gangsters who are posing as pastry chefs. Typical 1920s Broadway gangsters full of word play and stylized movements. Good comic timing and dancing skills required. Vocal Range: Tenor (Db3-Gb4)
