Oregon High School is performing this year’s spring musical The Drowsy Chaperone from March 7th - March 10th in the Oregon High School auditorium, Room 106. The first three nights of the show (Thursday - Saturday) will start at 7:00pm, and the Sunday matinee will start at 2:00pm. The seating will be general admission and tickets will only be available at the door. The doors will open 30 minutes prior to each performance. Tickets cost $10 for adults and $8 for students.

The Drowsy Chaperone, written by Lisa Lambert, Greg Morrison, Bob Martin, and Don McKellar is coined as a musical within a comedy, which is apparent from the very start of the production. The audience is introduced to a man in his apartment, looking to enjoy a quiet evening alone. As an informed lover of musicals, he turns to his favorite 1920’s era record, The Drowsy Chaperone. As the man and the audience watch the record come to life on stage, an exciting plot begins to unravel. Famous actress, Janet Van De Graff is to be married to her fiancé Robert Martin. However, there are several forces determined to prevent this marriage from taking place. Meanwhile, the man in his apartment is more than happy to pause to poke fun at ridiculous scenes and reflect on poignant ones.

The group of OHS students that make up this cast are extremely talented and have been working on the show since the beginning of January. They are supported by a pit orchestra consisting of high school students, school faculty, and local musicians. Please consider supporting our students and our community by coming out for a night of engaging and witty fun!
