Thespians To Perform ‘The Drowsy Chaperone’ For Fall Production

The Penn State Thespians will bring musical comedy “The Drowsy Chaperone” to Schwab Auditorium from October 12 to October 14 for their fall production.

“The Drowsy Chaperone” is a show within a show — according to the Thespians Facebook event, the curtain rises on an enthusiastic theater fan as she listens to a cast recording of “The Drowsy Chaperone” and watches the show come to life.

Last week, the Thespians held their first inter-organizational dance workshop in coordination with the show. Choreographer Brian Miseo and members of the cast taught the dance break to the song “Toledo Surprise” to encourage workshop attendees to see the show.

There will be performances every night at 7:30 p.m. as well as a 1:30 p.m. performance on Saturday afternoon. Tickets are available for purchase at the HUB the week prior to the show and at the door before any performance for $12, but students and children can get theirs for $5. You can also reserve tickets for any of the shows online.
