AUDITION INFORMATION FOR THE DROWSY CHAPERONE – 2014

 ANNOUNCEMENT: Looking for the ideal show that blends musicals with comedy? Then come audition for Woodbury Community Theatre’s production of “The Drowsy Chaperone,” directed by Lenore Weir. WCT will present “The Drowsy Chaperone” in March – a much beloved “musical within a comedy” during it’s long run on Broadway and at the Ordway here in Minnesota, which won Tony Awards for Best Book and Best Score in 2006. It’s a parody of musical comedy of the 1920s and is by far the funniest musical we have ever seen. WCT is looking for a large adult cast with 13 major roles and ensemble roles for 12. We will also cast 12 teens (must be 16 years or older).
