CRANFORD, NJ - The Drowsy Chaperone is coming to CDC Theatre in Cranford Rehearsals have begun at CDC Theatre in Cranford for the last show of the theatre’s 97th season. The Drowsy Chaperone, winner of 5 Tony Awards (including Best Book and Best Original Score), and hailed by New York Magazine as, "The Perfect Broadway Musical", is a loving send-up of the Jazz age musical featuring one show-stopping song and dance number after another. “It is a real thrill for my wife Mary and me to be directing "The Drowsy Chaperone" at CDC this season, following up on our successful production of "The Music Man" in 2013.” said show director Ken Webb. “We have been lucky enough to assemble an extremely talented cast. It is a show that is fun for both the actors and the audience. It is a very unique production because it is basically a show within a show. It allows us to bring in some contemporary elements while at the same time transporting the audience back to the roaring 20's.” The show will run weekends from May 6 through May 21. Visit www.cdctheatre.org for tickets and further information. Funding has been made possible in part by the NJ State Council on the Arts, Dept. of State, a Partner Agency of the National Endowment for the Arts, through a grant administered by the Union County Office of Cultural & Heritage Affairs.
