CU to present The Drowsy Chaperone
By Sara Farmer
Student intern, Office of University Communications
Campbellsville, KY - Campbellsville University's Theater Department and Town Hall Productions will present "The Drowsy Chaperone" Thursday-Sunday, Oct. 26-29 at Russ Mobley Theater in the Alumni Building at 114 University Drive, Campbellsville, Ky.
The play will be performed Thursday, Oct. 26 and Saturday, Oct. 28 at 7pmET; Friday, Oct. 27 at 8pmET and Sunday, Oct. 29 at 2:30pmET.
A synopsis of the play, according to Musical Theatre International, follows:
"When a die hard theatre fan plays his favorite cast album, the characters come to life in this hilarious musical farce.
"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.
"Hailed by New York Magazine as 'The Perfect Broadway Musical,' 'The Drowsy Chaperone' is a masterful meta-musical, poking fun at all the tropes that characterize the musical theatre genre."
Town Hall Productions/Andrew Ward is the producer of the play. Starr Garrett, director and associate professor of theater at Campbellsville University, is directing the play with Dr. Bethany Stiles, assistant professor of voice at Campbellsville University, as music director.

The cast members include: James Mattingly of Danville, Ky. as Man in Chair; Diandra Sallee of Nicholasville, Ky. as Tottendale; Eric Zhao of China as Underling; Sarah Durham of Campbellsville as Drowsy;
Hollie Nall of Elizabethtown, Ky. as Janet; Daniel Bannister of Glasgow, KY as Robert; Les Chadwick of Campbellsville as George; Joseph Mattingly of Bardstown, Ky. as Feldzieg;
Janae Boling of Crestwood, Ky. as Kitty; Cody Campbell of LaGrange, Ky. as Aldolpho; Deja Thompson of Adairville, Ky. as Trix; CJ Calhoun of Frankfort, KY as superintendent;
