SAM ODROWSKI The Standard
UXBRIDGE: Get ready to laugh, sing, and tap your feet, as Ryleepuss Productions brings the Drowsy Chaperone to the Uxbridge Music Hall, from February 14th to 24th.
The jazz aged Canadian musical parody is a five time Tony award winning show. The play is a comedy that looks at a fictitious musical set in 1928.
The show begins with a musical theatre fan, all alone, in his one bedroom apartment. He flips through some records and puts one on called “The Drowsy Chaperone.” All of the sudden, the record comes to life filling his living room with various movie stars, gangsters, divas, and more.
“It’s fun for the whole family, it has a lot of singing, dancing and comedy. It’s light hearted but also quite heart felt. It does a really good job paying tribute and lovingly poking fun at 1920s musicals,” said Micheal Yaneff, Director of the play.
The cast for the production features some very skilled local actors as well as people from all over the GTA.
Michael said, “There is some very talented people in the show, with lots of different backgrounds, we have come up with a very strong cast and they play their characters really well.”
He added that the cast is very passionate about the production and have a strong appreciation for theatre.
“People come to do the show because they love what they do. You get to see a bunch of people with their hearts in it, putting on a show because they love creating theatre, singing, acting, and dancing,” Michael said.
He encourages everyone in the area who are looking for a good laugh to come out and enjoy a night at the Uxbridge Music Hall. Michael said it’s important to support local actors and productions.
Tickets are $25 for adults, $22 for seniors, and $16 for students, with taxes included. The shows are happening at the Uxbridge Music Hall, located on 16 Main Street.
The first performance kicked off at 7:30 p.m., on February 14th, and there are eight more shows between then and the last one, on February 24th. For more information about the show, visit: http://www.uxbridgemusichall.com/.
