Tickets on sale now for musical comedy ‘The Drowsy Chaperone’

Tickets are on sale for the Center Theatre Players’ production of the Tony Award-winning musical comedy “The Drowsy Chaperone,” which will be presented at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Friday and Saturday, July 25, 26 and 27, in the auditorium of the Penn State Beaver Student Union Building. Tickets are $15 for all ages.

This year’s show, directed by Sandy Reigel, is part of the Brodhead Cultural Center’s 37th annual summer series and is partially underwritten by a gift from Harper & Hodge. A winner of five Tony Awards in 2006, “The Drowsy Chaperone” opens when a diehard musical-theater fan plays his favorite cast album on his turntable. The musical literally bursts to life in his living room, telling the rambunctious tale of a brazen Broadway starlet trying to find, and keep, her true love. Music and lyrics are by Lisa Lambert and Greg Morrison; the book is by Bob Martin and Don McKellar.

Sponsors of the Brodhead Cultural Center’s 37th season of programming are The Times; Harper & Hodge; Beaver Valley Musicians Union, Local 82-545; Michael Baker Corporation, Eat’n Park Hospitality Group, Inc.; ESB Bank; Kitchen and Bath Concepts, Pittsburgh; and NOVA Chemicals.

Advance ticket purchase is recommended, and all seats are general admission. Tickets can be purchased by credit card, check or cash. For more information, call 724-773-3610, visit www.beaver.psu.edu/brodhead or send email to br-bcc@psu.edu.
