Sturgis welcomes Drowsy Chaperone to the stage

By  | 

Sturgis, SD The Sturgis Arts Council opened their production of The Drowsy Chaperone this weekend and it was a hilarious hit.

The Drowsy Chaperone is a play within a play and is set in a musical lovers apartment as he plays the record of the musical.

The show is set in the 1920's and features classic lovers ... gangster pastry chefs ... and of course an intoxicated chaperone.

Each scene is occasionally stopped by the owner of the apartment to offer commentary which may steal the show.

Chris Wheeler, actor playing Robert the bridegroom says, "His role is the man in chair and honestly he is my favorite part of the play because you have your classic comical play but then his commentary sort of provides this realistic view on it that's very funny and it's stuff that I bet everyone has thought but has never said out loud."

There is still one more chance to see the show at the Sturgis Community Center Monday evening and tickets are available at the door.
