The Drowsy Chaperone

Fri 3rd – Sat 11th Aug 2018


“A musical within a comedy. ”





EUSOG (Edinburgh University Savoy Opera Group)


The Drowsy Chaperone pays homage to Jazz Age musicals of the 1920s, poking fun at all the tropes that characterise the musical theatre genre. The show focuses on the middle-aged Man in Chair as he listens to a rare recording of the forgotten production and, as his record plays, the show comes to life onstage whilst he drolly comments on the music, story and actors.

With an elaborate cast of over-the-top characters, including the dashing groom, his best man, a drunken chaperone, two gangsters posing as pastry chefs, and the Latin lover, The Drowsy Chaperone boldly addresses a great unspoken desire in everyone’s heart - to be entertained.

Hailed by New York Magazine as “The Perfect Broadway Musical”, The Drowsy Chaperone is the winner of five Tony Awards, including Best Book and Best Original Score, and its numerous featured roles and dance numbers make this production a perfect fit for the Fringe.
