Musical with benefit auction on the side hits WCU stage

Written by 

art chaperone“The Drowsy Chaperone,” a playful take on classic musicals of Broadway, will be performed at 7:30 p.m. April 11-13, and 3 p.m. April 14, in the John W. Bardo Fine and Performing Arts Center at Western Carolina University. 

 

Paying homage to the musical comedies of the 1920s, “The Drowsy Chaperone” cleverly plays mistaken identities, dream sequences, contrived plot points and stereotypical characters — the levelheaded English butler, comic gangsters and a ditzy showgirl — to uproarious results. 

A silent auction and the raffle of a getaway for two to New York City are planned in conjunction with the performance. Put together by WCU’s Friends of the Arts Organization, the silent auction and raffle will benefit student scholarships and programs in WCU’s College of Fine and Performing Arts. The auction will run in the Bardo Arts Center lobby beginning 90 minutes before each performance and for 30 minutes after the curtain falls. Close to $20,000 worth of goods and services have so far been donated toward the fundraiser.

Admission to “The Drowsy Chaperone” is $20 for adults, $15 for seniors and WCU faculty and staff, and $7 (in advance) and $10 (day of show) for students.
