2015: The Drowsy Chaperone

 

LAMP are delighted to be performing "The Drowsy Chaperone" as our 2015 production, running from Monday 19th to Saturday 24th of October at Linlithgow Academy Theatre.

The curtain rises on a present-day musical theatre fanatic eager to tell you about his favorite Broadway musical — the 1928 musical comedy 'The Drowsy Chaperone'. He’s the ultimate Everyfan and “Drowsy” is his guilty pleasure.

To chase his blues away, the 'Man in the Chair' drops the needle on his favourite LP and as he begins listening to the rare cast recording, the show cleverly and magically blooms to life.

From the crackle of his hi-fi, the uproariously funny musical magically bursts to life on stage, telling the tale of a pampered Broadway starlet who wants to give up show business to get married, her producer who sets out to sabotage the nuptials, her chaperone, the debonair groom, the dizzy chorine, the Latin lover and a pair of gangsters who double as pastry chefs. Man in Chair's infectious love of The Drowsy Chaperone speaks to anyone who has ever been transported by the theatre.
