 Sarah Durham, senior at CU, plays the role of the drowsy chaperone. The play shows Thursday, Oct. 26 until Sunday, Oct. 29.

Campbellsville University’s Theater Department and Town Hall Productions will present “The Drowsy Chaperone” Oct. 26-29 at Russ Mobley Theater in

the Alumni Building at 114 University Drive, Campbellsville.

The play will be performed Thursday, Oct. 26 and Saturday, Oct. 28 at 7 p.m.; Friday, Oct. 27 at 8 p.m. and Sunday, Oct. 29 at 2:30 p.m.

A synopsis of the play, according to Musical Theatre International, follows:

“When a die hard theatre fan plays his favorite cast album, the characters come to life in this hilarious musical farce.”

“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.

“Hailed by New York Magazine as “The Perfect Broadway Musical,” The Drowsy Chaperone is a masterful meta-musical, poking fun at all the tropes that characterize the musical theatre genre.”

General admission is for adults $10 with seniors (65 and up), children (12 and under) prices at $7. Employees of Campbellsville University can purchase tickets for $5.
