Pilot Program

Spring 2019, Drowsy Chaperone Jr. Pilot Program

This class is open to students in 5th-12th grades!

Join us on stage in the premiere of the JUNIOR version of Drowsy Chaperone!

Take the next step as an actor and be the first to perform iTheatric's new Drowsy Chaperone Jr. This unique opportunity will give your young actor access to brand new material and challenge them as they work with high level Teaching Artists and the chance for national exposure.

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 a couple 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 a loopy chaperone, and you have the ingredients for an evening of madcap delight.
