      THE DROWSY CHAPERONE

      Music and lyrics by Lisa Lambert and Greg Morrison

      Book by Bob Martin and Don McKellar
      Box office: sedos.co.uk
       
      Winner of five Tony Awards including Best Book of Musical and Best Original Score, The Drowsy Chaperone bursts to life on the Bridewell Theatre stage this May.
      A Man sits at home, and looks for a cure for his “non-specific sadness”. He turns to his record collection and selects a little-known recording from the glory days of Broadway, “The Drowsy Chaperone”. As the record plays, we are transported into the world of a 1920s musical where there are gangsters, mistaken identities and a wedding that may or may not happen. While the musical comes to life around him, we not only learn more about the characters of the farcical production, but more about The Man and how he came to be sitting alone, feeling blue.
      Both a riot of musical silliness, and a commentary on the transformative powers of story-telling, this short show will appeal to the theatre geek in all of us.

      Friday 2 June at 7.30
      Tickets: £10
      An evening of humour with Charles Garland and Alfie.  This is a fundraising event for the new Greenroom building.
      Recorded cameo music by Rick Wakeman, with occasional extracts from the book “My Labrador Eats Poo”.
      Directed by Sam Snape
      Charles Garland is a writer and composer, television producer and director. His performing career began at Birmingham Repertory Theatre as a dancer in a musical, and ended at The Old Vic Theatre as actor / musician in a production of Dickens’ Great Expectations.
      Soon after, Charles joined the BBC, as assistant to Sir Jonathan Miller for a new production of Cosi Fan Tutte. Following that, he worked on shows such as Blue Peter; three Royal Variety shows; sketch and variety shows, including The Paul Daniels Magic Show as well as dramas and a stint as director of Top Of The Pops.
      Sitcom became a major part of his working life, with Terry and June; Joint Account; and Last Of The Summer Wine as assistant producer, and assisting David Croft OBE, on Hi-De-Hi!; ‘Allo ‘Allo! ;You Rang, M’Lord? and Oh, Dr Beeching! as producer.
      Next, over a three year period, Charles re-edited most of the classic comedy archive for the BBC, including Dad’s Army; Are You Being Served?; Steptoe and Son; Porridge; The Good Life and more.
      Having left the BBC, Charles is now freelance, and going back to his roots with his book of ‘whimsical verse’ entitled ‘My Labrador Eats Poo’ (not quite as disgusting as it sounds) illustrated by Harry Venning, and this stage show, which features Charles, and his Labrador Alfie.
