THE DROWSY CHAPERONE pays tribute to the Jazz Age shows of the 1920′s and the power those shows held to transport us into a dazzling fantasy and to lift our spirits in times of sadness.

The show includes four romantic couples, a best man, a pair of gangsters, a deus ex machina in the form of an aviatrix, and the host/narrator, which is not a singing role. Yes, if you are a male who has always wanted to be in a musical, despite the lack of singing ability, this is the show for you.

What follows is a casting list with vocal ranges.  Age ranges are approximate stage ages and are by no means absolute.
