The Drowsy Chaperone, book by Bob Martin and Don McKellar, and music and lyrics by Lisa Lambert and Greg Morrison, is sort of a one man show. The main character, known affectionately and exclusively as “Man in Chair”, listens to a recording of a (fictitious) Jazz Age musical called The Drowsy Chaperone and imagines the show in his mind.

It’s a new school year, and the drama departments at Wausau West, Wausau East, Edgar, and DC Everest are all gearing up for their fall shows. Through a variety of styles and time frames, all four are performing comedies. Conveniently, if you want to catch them all, the productions are on consecutive weekends.
The East End Players hit the stage first, and they’re taking us back to the roots of comedy with William Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night, a lovely counter-point to UWMC’s recent production of Shakespeare’s tragic Romeo and Juliet. The following weekend, Edgar Theatre Company (ETC) jumps into the 1940s with their production of Mary Chase’s classic, Harvey, the first production to be staged in Edgar High School’s brand spanking new auditorium.
Hitting the fast forward button again, Wausau West brings us the 2005 nouveau classic, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, a musical comedy performed in one act. Finally, DC Everest Drama goes forward and backward in time with a 2006 show that centers around a fictional 1928 Jazz Age musical, The Drowsy Chaperone, leveraging a variation on the show-within-a-show device that worked so nicely in Wausau East’s spring production of Kiss Me Kate.

What does Eric Brandt have in common with Joseph Cotten, Humphrey Bogart and Harrison Ford? [Insert well deserved dig on Eric here] Yes, whatever you said is almost certainly true. Plus, at one time or another, all four of us have fallen in love with Sabrina Fairchild.

The DC Everest School District is currently considering the possibility of eliminating about two-thirds of its annual drama program according to sources in the district. Their current program consists of one Senior Level musical for grades 9-12, one Junior Level musical for grades 6-8, and one three-act straight play. The proposal on the table would eliminate the three-act play all together and rotate the Senior Level and Junior Level shows on an every other year basis.
