Theatre Under the Stars (“TUTS”) has been bringing soaring works of song and dance to the crown jewel of the city, Stanley Park, for over 75 years! This season TUTS presents a pair of Broadway blockbusters at Malkin Bowl: Mary Poppins and The Drowsy Chaperone. I have the opportunity to give away an awesome date night experience that features fun in the city paired with one of these colourful musical productions.
The Drowsy Chaperone
“A deliriously witty love letter to musical theatre… funny, energetic…graced with talent galore.”
– Vancouver Sun
The Drowsy Chaperone is bursting with show-stopping song and dance. This Canadian musical parody & five-time Tony Award-winner whisks audiences away on a Jazz Age journey of love, laughter, and libation.
Alone in his modest, one-bedroom apartment, a musical theatre fan puts on his treasured cast recording. As the record spins, the colourful & chaotic characters of a fictitious 1928 musical spring to life – filling his living room with all manner of movie stars, gangsters, divas, and more.
Starring as Man in Chair is five-time Jessie Award-winner Shawn Macdonald who takes the stage with TUTS newcomer and lauded actor Caitriona Murphy (The Drowsy Chaperone) as well as Shannon Hanbury, who makes her ninth TUTS appearance as Janet van de Graaff. Joining them are Stuart Barkley (Robert Martin), Blake Sartin (George), and Dimitrios Stephanoy as the Latin lothario Aldolpho. Directed by Gillian Barber, The Drowsy Chaperone features choreography by Shelley Stewart Hunt, with musical direction by Kevin Michael Cripps.
