“Drowsy Chaperone” begins second week of performances

By Grace Curry

“The Drowsy Chaperone” opened last weekend, and will be followed by performances on May 10-12. This musical comedy is narrated by the Man in the Chair as he takes the audience through his life stories, all while listening to a nostalgic record of his favorite musical.

“There’s some misadventures on the way, and it’s very character driven,” senior Daniel Howell said. “The characters are very big, and it’s really fun to perform; I’m really excited for it.” Howell plays the role of Underling, the sarcastic butler of a wealthy widow.

Senior Trevor Rabosky, having helped with THS musicals in the past, came back again this year to play clarinet in the show. “The music is a little more difficult than it was for ‘Little Shop,’ it’s a little more rhythmically challenging,” Rabosky said. He said his favorite part of working on shows is seeing the action behind the scenes. “A lot of people don’t get to see what goes on backstage… it’s really intriguing to see how much work gets put in for the two hour show,” he said.

Nevaeh Eckroth, who’s been working on the show’s costume crew for the past couple months, shared her pride in the show’s results from dress rehearsal. “Everyone’s really talented; I’m in awe,” Eckroth said.

Senior Jacob Resnikoff plays the Man in the Chair. “Being the Man in the Chair, I’ve loved having the opportunity to bounce off others’ energy drive the story forward, including the audiences’,” Resnikoff said. He concluded that his favorite part of the show was working so closely with the rest of the production, making his last high school show a hard goodbye. “Everyone has worked incredibly hard to put this show together,” he said. “It would mean a lot to all of us to get as many people in the auditorium as we can. See you there!”

Tickets are $10. They are available online at or $12 at the door, except tonight, which is $6 with student id.
