Wilmington College Summer Theatre

We would like to announce that the show for this summer is the musical comedy, "The Drowsy Chaperone."

With the houselights down, a man in a chair appears on stage and he puts on his favorite record: the cast recording of a fictitious 1928 musical. The recording comes to life and THE DROWSY CHAPERONE begins with the cast of characters coming out of and through his apartment, as the man 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 and her very proper, sarcastic butler, two gangsters posing as pastry chefs, a misguided Don Juan, a ditsy show girl, the intoxicated chaperone of the bride, and chorus folks and you've got a show soup dense with delicious delight!
