The Wilton Playshop will present The Drowsy Chaperone, based on the book by Bob Martin and Don McKellar, with music and lyrics by Lisa Lambert and Greg Morrison. The director is Don Bovingloh.

Performances will be on Feb. 15, 16, 17, 21, 22, 23, 24, 28, and March 1, 2. Evening curtain is at 8, Sundays at 2. Tickets are $25/adults $20/students and seniors.

The curtain rises on a present-day musical theater fanatic eager to tell about his favorite Broadway musical, The Drowsy Chaperone. He’s the ultimate Everyfan.

As he begins listening to the cast recording, the show cleverly blooms to life, telling the comedic tale of a pampered Broadway bride-to-be starlet (accompanied by her Chaperone), her debonair fiancé, an overzealous producer, a dizzy chorine, the Latin lover and a couple of bumbling gangsters. Ruses are played. Hi-jinks occur. And the plot spins into musical comedy.

Tickets and information: wiltonplayshop.org or 203-762-7629.
