Stapleton MCA & The Aurora Fox to Present DROWSY CHAPERONE, 6/7-8

Stapleton MCA and The Aurora Fox will present a fun, family-friendly musical - The Drowsy Chaperone Friday, June 6th and Saturday, June 7th at 7:00pm and Sunday, June 8th at 4:00pm as part of Stapleton's ongoing Theatre on the Green Series on the lawn at Founder's Green (just east of Quebec on 29th). Admission is free.

With Music and Lyrics by Lisa Lambert and Greg Morrison and Book by Bob Martin and Don McKellar, THE DROWSY CHAPERONE (winner of 2 Tony Awards including Best Original Score) pays tribute to the Jazz-age shows of the 1920's while addressing a great unspoken desire in all of our hearts: to be entertained.

To chase his blues away, a mousy modern day musical theatre addict known simply as "Man in Chair" (played by Paul Page - who has won Best Actor honors for his work in Bengal Tiger at the Baghdad Zoo, Glengarry Glen Ross, The Cider House Rules, Deathtrap and Sleuth) drops the needle on his favorite LP - the 1928 musical comedy The Drowsy Chaperone. From the crackle of his hi-fi, the uproariously funny musical magically bursts to life on stage, telling the tale of a pampered Broadway starlet who wants to give up show business to get married, her producer who sets out to sabotage the nuptials, her chaperone, the debonair groom, the dizzy chorine, the Latin lover and a pair of gangsters who double as pastry chefs. Man in Chair's infectious love of The Drowsy Chaperone speaks to anyone who has ever been transported by the theater.

Suitable for all ages, and admission is FREE. Pack a picnic, grab the kids and a blanket and head on over to Stapleton's outdoor theatre. Located just East of 29th and Quebe www.aurorafox.org
