Portage Northern Drama



The Drowsy Chaperone

Tickets are Available NOW!

Sometimes the world we are living in seems a bit too serious, full of confusion and divisive news.  It might just be us, but at times it can feel overwhelming.  If you're like us, we have the perfect remedy for you this winter!  The Portage Northern Drama Department is excited to present our musical - the fantastically imaginative parody and musical comedy The Drowsy Chaperone.  This 5-time Tony award winning musical invites the audience to share an evening with The Man in Chair as he listens to a fictional 1928 musical comedy.  While this rare recording plays, the characters appear in his apartment to recreate the Broadway show, full of starlets, gangsters, extravagant musical numbers, and every nonsensical plot twist one would hope for in a musical from the ‘20s.  Invisible to the actors, Man in Chair provides a running commentary through the show, bringing the audience in on the satire.

The musical is led by a troupe of 40 talented high school actors, a 37 member student technical crew, and a team of professional designers.  Show dates and times are December 1, 2, and 8 at 7:30 pm, and December 3 and 9th at 2:00 pm.  We will also be offering general admission ticketing for adults at our Thursday, December 7th 6:00 pm Student Night (Student tickets are $5 at the door with a valid ID).

We are also excited to partner with the PNHS Collage concert this year. Receive 20% off when you purchase tickets to The Drowsy Chaperone and the Collage Concert at the same time. Just add tickets from both shows to your cart before checking out.
