Heelan Musical Moves to Fall

Students Star in "Drowsy Chaperone" Nov. 7-10
Posted on 10/29/2019
Heelan’s Spring Musical has moved to November! Don’t miss the singing talent of Heelan students in the Drowsy Chaperone, a hilarious parody of musical comedies, on Thursday-Saturday, Nov. 7-9 at 7 p.m. and Sunday, Nov. 10 at 2 p.m. in the Heelan auditorium. Tickets are $5 for students and $7 for adults.

Performers are: Christopher Krogh as Man in Chair, Eric Lohr as Robert, Asia Keane as Janet, Truman Osborn as George, Sarah Beumler as Mrs. Tottendale and Foster Johnson as the Drowsy Chaperone from the 1920s. A host of other singing characters appear.

The story centers around the Man in the Chair as he listens to his favorite musical, the fictional 1928 hit The Drowsy Chaperone. As the record begins, the show comes to life in his living room, complete with every cliché character from the early era of American Musicals and the Man’s thoughts on the music, and actors. 

The Heelan musical’s move to November means the traditional fall play moves to spring, according to Emily Bonnema, theater director. The Heelan productions were swapped on the school calendar because of strained schedules of student performers. Chorale’s annual spring trip and show choir students hectic January thru March schedules hampers musical rehearsal and needed prep time.
