Photo Flash: First Look at Clay Aiken, Beth Leavel and More in NCT's DROWSY CHAPERONE

American Idol star, Clay Aiken, is returning to the stage as "Man in Chair" in North Carolina Theatre's production of THE DROWSY CHAPERONE along with Tony-Award winner, Beth Leavel, who will be reprising her role as "The Chaperone." The show is set to open tonight, May 7 through May 12 at the Raleigh Memorial Auditorium at the Duke Energy Center for the Performing Arts. BroadwayWorld has a first look at the production shots below!

The Drowsy Chaperone follows a devoted theater fan's love affair with the madcap musicals of the 1920s, particularly one title that comes to life in his apartment as he fires up his record player. The Broadway production opened on May 1, 2006 and earned 13 Tony nominations, winning five (including Best Book and Best Score).

A rare combination of unprecedented originality and blinding talent, The Drowsy Chaperone boldly addresses a great unspoken desire in all of our hearts: to be entertained. If you've ever sat in a dark theatre and thought, "Dear Lord in heaven, please let it be good," this is the show for you! It all begins when a die-hard musical theater fan plays his favorite cast album on his turntable, and the musical literally bursts to life in his living room, telling the rambunctious tale of a brazen Broadway starlet trying to find, and keep, her true love.
