Announces The Drowsy Chaperone Auditions – 1438052
07-25-14 – Columbus, OH>Cleveland, OH – The Drowsy Chaperone Auditions

Do you need a jolt of fun and energy? Do you enjoy Broadway musical productions that take you away from your hum drum boring life? Well then, I prescribe, The Drowsy Chaperone as an effective distraction from everyday life, put on by The Mount Vernon Players!

The story of The Drowsy Chaperone is told from the perspective of a single man, called “The Man in Chair”, who is a huge fan of the musicals of the Jazz Age. He tells the story as if he is sharing the plot of a favorite musical with the audience, interjecting little morsels of his own life as he does so. The Drowsy Chaperone has been described as a musical within a comedy.

As “The Man in Chair” plays songs from the musical production that he so loves, characters appear on the stage to tell the story of Janet Vandegraff, a glamorous showgirl who has decided to leave the spotlight behind for love. The story is set during the week of her wedding, and examines Janet’s decision to exit the glamor of the stage, her oil tycoon fiance’s adoration of her, and her manager’s devastation at her leaving the show, which jeopardizes the continue success of the “Feldzieg’s Follie’s that he produces. Janet explains her decision in the song, “Show Off”, where she sings, “I don’t wanna show off no more.”

The Drowsy Chaperone production includes quick-witted gangsters disguised as pastry chefs who can weave a humorous pastry term into every conversation. It has a ditzy-blonde side-kick of Janet’s Manager, an aviatrix who brings her bi-plane on stage just in time for the ceremony and, of course, a chaperone.

The chaperone’s role in the musical is to keep the two starry-eyed lovers from seeing each other on their wedding day, but this tipsy chaperone’s love of prohibition alcohol (thus the “drowsy”), and her dalliance with the goofy latin lover who thinks she is Janet, sidetracks her from her duty. The wedding is jeopardized, called off and then back on, with fun, silly chaos intertwined between the two extremes. — Project Type: Live Event

Theater Auditions – Peter Pan – 1438045
07-25-14 – Cleveland, OH>Columbus, OH – Peter Pan Jr. Auditions

Tinker Bell and her fellow Fairies introduce the audience to our story (”Fly to Your Heart”). The Darling Children, Wendy, Michael and John, play make-believe in their nursery, imaging themselves in never land (”The Elegant Captain Hook”). Mr. Darling comes looking for his cufflinks but discovers that his adventurous children have drawn a treasure map on the back of his last clean shirt. He scolds Wendy for refusing to grow up and trips over Nana, the dog and nursemaid. Mr. Darling banishes Nana from the nursery, explaining that sooner or later, all children must grow up. Mrs. Darling puts the children to bed and Wendy asks her to leave the window open in case Peter Pan returns (”The Second Star to the Right”).

While the Darling children slumber, Peter Pan and Tinker Bell sneak into the nursery in search of Peter’s lost shadow. Wendy wakes up and excitedly tells Peter that she doesn’t want to grow up. He offers to take Wendy and her brothers back to Never Land. Peter teaches Wendy and her brothers to fly, and they set off into the night (”You Can Fly / Fly to Your Heart”). — Project Type: Live Event
