Report

Author: Carole Baynes

WOS Productions' first full scale musical after the Covid hiatus was the delightful 1920's musical spoof "The Drowsy Chaperone". They presented a wonderful evening's entertainment fully of catchy tunes, clever dance routines, crazy situations and a tale of 'love in crisis' involving gangsters, show people, servants and millionaires. The progress of the musical is controlled by the "Man in the Chair' as he plays the musical on his gramophone. The 'Man' developed a wonderful rapport with the audience immediately thereby ensuring that they all enjoyed the show "The Drowsy Chaperone`' as much as he did.
