Wednesday 8th - Saturday 11th February 2012 ( 2.30pm (Sat.) & 7.30pm)

An adoring but agoraphopbic lover of musical theatre, simply called 'Man in Chair', sits in his dingy flat in New York, feeling a little blue. Chatting with the audience he explains that he often picks up his spirits by listening to his record collection. As he places his favourite show 'The Drowsy Chaperone' onto his turntable the show bursts to life in his room! 'The Drowsy Chaperone' is an effervescent spoof to old musicals and a winner of two Tony Awards on Broadway and five Olivier Award Nominations. Full of larger than life characters it will entertain you with its catchy tunes and madcap dance routines whilst the hilarious asides from 'Man in Chair' allow you to laugh knowingly with him at the paper thin plot. It's the perfect antidote to cold February evenings and is suitable for the whole family.

This is Good Company's second show at the Barn (they also brought you' A Man of No Importance') and the show features a hand-picked cast of talented and experienced individuals drawn from companies as diverse as Barnstormers, CODA, Stagers, Mitre Players and more. It is directed by Alex Murphy, choreographed by Dawn and musically directed by Robert Randall.

On Wednesday evening and Saturday matinee tickets are priced at £14.00 with £11.00 concessions and Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings £16.00 with concessions at £13.00.
