Let Ara Institute of Canterbury’s National Academy of Singing and Dramatic Art (NASDA) transport you back to the heady Prohibition days of late 1920s America in this loving send-up of the era’s frivolous musicals. A story within a story, The Drowsy Chaperone pokes fun at the many common tropes of old-fashioned musicals. Think Broadway divas, cigar-smoking fat cats, bumbling gangsters, tipsy chaperones and put-upon servants. Expect hi-jinks, mad-cap mix-ups and a plot that spins everyone into musical comedy euphoria.
