It’s a Canadian play and debuting in Huntsville with an all-local cast. The Drowsy Chaperone opens tonight at the Algonquin Theatre. Tia Pearse says a play like this is a great opportunity to local actors to showcase their talent.

The play is a parody on American musicals of the Jazz Age and the effects these musicals have on their fans. Pearse says this play shows that there is talent in Canada. She says Canadians are underrepresented on Broadway.

Tonight’s show starts at 7:30 p.m. If you can’t make tonight there are shows tomorrow, Sunday and next weekend. This play is co-production of the Huntsville Festival of the Arts and the Rotary Club of Huntsville.
