The Drowsy Chaperone

October 17 - November 2
Theatre, Main Stage(107)

Cost: $20 Adult, $18 Senior, $10 Student

Music & lyrics by Lisa Lambert and Greg Morrison
Book by Bob Martin and Don McKellar
Directed by Earl D. Weaver

When a die-hard musical-theater fan plays his favorite cast album on his turntable, the 1920s musical literally bursts to life in his living room, telling the rambunctious tale of a brazen Broadway starlet, her boozy chaperone, and a rambunctious crew of wedding guests.

“Here is a musical that frankly sets itself up as a short (1 hour 40 minutes), happy exercise in escapism, adorned with just enough postmodern footnotes to make you feel all insiderly. It's sort of like being able to eat your cake and diet too.” – New York Times

The 10/26 performance of The Drowsy Chaperone coincides with a UCF home football game. You will need to allow extra time to get to the theater for this performance. Please note that the parking location during home games has changed. Theatre patrons should park in Lots B4 or B6. A parking permit, which we will email to you before the performance, will be required. Please print it out and have it displayed on your dashboard while you are on campus. Golf cart shuttles will meet you at the parking lot take you to the theater.

See the Theatre UCF Box Office page for ticket information. All evening performances begin at 8pm. Matinees begin at 2pm.
