Metropolis Performing Arts Centre

The Drowsy Chaperone Music and Lyrics by Lisa Lambert and Greg Morrison Book by Bob Martin and Don McKellar A nod to the Jazz Age American musical, this fun show is a musical within a comedy. Follow a musical theatre lover as he takes the audience through the score of one of his favorite musicals. Centering around a fictional late 20's musical in which a stage star, Janet Van De Graaff, plans to leave her life in the spotlight to marry a man that she just met. There are plenty of laughs in this bright musical The Associated Press hailed as "Delightful, Sparkling Entertainment!" With a frantic best man, snarky butler, ditsy showgirl, undercover gangsters and a romancing foreigner, this cast of characters is a delight.

MCL Chicago
5/22-6/27/2015
ZIG: EDM Suicide Fridays & Saturdays at 7:30 p.m. May 22 - June 27 (NO shows June 5 & 6) Preview May 15 BYOB A 1970s Arena Rock Odyssey In this new original musical set in the techno-heavy modern day, "ZIG: EDM Suicide" introduces audiences to EDM (Electronic Dance Music) superstar ZIG who craves to make any type of real connection with the youth of this generation, not with their cell phones. While ZIG searches for the song that will connect his millennial fans to rock 'n' roll music, his label only wants him to be trending no matter the cost. Drawing inspiration from rock legends of the 1970s, particularly David Bowie and his alter-ego Ziggy Stardust, ZIG ventures on a drug fueled fantasia receiving help from cosmic characters such as Space Jesus Neil Degrasse Tyson, Sarah from Labyrinth and Major Tom. Join ZIG on his odyssey into 1970s arena rock and roll. Director: Alex Richmond Writer (Book & Lyrics): Michael Shepherd Jordan Music Directer: Stephanie McCullough Additional Music: Brad Kemp Featuring: Alex Garday, Katie Nixon, Ed Selvey IV, Abby Vatterott, Michael Shepherd Jordan Band "The Wenus from Venus" Piano: Stephanie McCullough & Robbie Ellis Lead Guitar: Jesse Greco Rhythm Guitar: Gary Fields Bass: Geno Alesandrini Drums: Aaron Paul Homard
