Ashland High School presents the five-time Tony Award-winning, Broadway musical "The Drowsy Chaperone."
This show-within-a-show includes a silly sequence of events involving Broadway star and bride-to-be Janet Van De Graaff and her rich groom-to-be, Robert Martin, on their wedding day. In short, nothing goes according to plan, and somehow one wedding turns into four.
A cast of 28 students, directed by Tyrone Wilson, will deliver plenty of laughs in the production as gangsters, groomsmen, a Broadway producer, an aspiring actress, a Latin lover and an alcoholic chaperone, to name a few. Look for Jeremiah Lieberman, Noah Yaconelli, Lisa Marie Werfel, Alyssa Monning, Amelia Mejia, Michaela Poling, Joseph Yaconelli, Jackson Richmond, Braedon Bell, Mason McClellan, Elena Toppo and Isabelle Enns.
