“Drowsy Chaperone” plays at Welk Resort

“The Drowsy Chaperone,” directed and Choreographed by Ray Limon, is a musical that pays homage to the silly, predictable gems of the golden age of musical theater, now playing at The Welk Resort Theatre.

This loving send-up of the Jazz Age musical features one show-stopping song and dance number after another. When the house lights go down, a man in a chair appears on stage and puts on his favorite record – the fictitious 1928 musical “The Drowsy Chaperone.”

As the music starts, his apartment transforms and the musical begins. But the man has the ability to stop the show whenever he wants to can comment on what’s going on, which is only fair.  After all, it is his record and his apartment.

“The Drowsy Chaperone,” presented by Premiere Productions, is now playing at The Welk Resort Theatre, 8860 Lawrence Welk Drive in Escondido. Visit bit.ly/2vAni4M.
