Live theater in the friendliest town in the south.


Winner of five Tony Awards, including Best Book and Best Original Score, The Drowsy Chaperone is a loving send-up of the Jazz Age musical, featuring one show-stopping song and dance number after another.


With the houselights down, a man in a chair appears on stage and puts on his favorite record: the cast recording of a fictitious 1928 musical. The recording comes to life and The Drowsy Chaperone begins as the man in the chair looks on. Mix in two lovers on the eve of their wedding, a bumbling best man, a desperate theatre producer, a not-so-bright hostess, two gangsters posing as pastry chefs, a misguided Don Juan and an intoxicated chaperone, and you have the ingredients for an evening of madcap delight.

Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike


Plot Synopsis

Set in the present, in a lovely farm house in Bucks County, Pennsylvania where adult siblings Vanya and Sonia reside in their old family home, mourning their lost dreams and missed opportunities. When their often-wrong, fortune-telling maid warns of impending dangers, and their movie star sister, Masha, arrives unexpectedly with young, sexy, boy toy, Spike, the family is launched into a rollicking weekend of one-upmanship, exposed nerves, and a lot of broken mugs. With wit and absurdity, Christopher Durang’s Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike blends Chekhov’s famous ennui with the modern-day toils and troubles of celebrity, social networking, and age into a laugh-out-loud comedy that will tickle your funny bone and stimulate your mind.


Character Descriptions

Vanya*:  adult male 40’s-60’s  

Resigned to his life, more or less, at least compared to Sonia, although somewhat disappointed with it.


Sonia*:  adult female 40’s-60’s

His adopted sister living with him at the family homestead.  Discontent, upset, regretful, insecure especially about her looks.


Masha*:  adult female 40’s-60’s

Their sister—a glamorous and successful self-involved actress who goes gallivanting around the world and is used to getting her way!


Spikemale 20-30’s

An aspiring actor, sexy, self-absorbed, Masha’s new companion.  Extremely comfortable with his body and does not mind showing it off!


Cassandrafemale, any age or race

Cleaning lady and soothsayer.  Some comedic timing and specific delivery of lines required. 


Ninayounger female, late 20’s-30’s

Lovely, sincere would be actress, visiting her aunt and uncle next door. Star struck and energetic with a truly good soul.
