The Drowsy Chaperone


by Lisa Lambert & Greg Morrison

When an avid theatre buff places an old record on his phonograph, his favorite 1928 Broadway show comes to life in his living room. A loving satire of old musicals, THE DROWSY CHAPERONE hilariously pulls one show-stopping production number after another out of – the refrigerator. A parade of zany characters spills onto the stage: the lovable movie star and her besotted bridegroom, a bumbling best man, a desperate movie producer, ditsy hostess, wise-cracking butler, gangsters in disguise, a Latin Lothario, and an inebriated chaperone will all sing and dance their way into your heart.

The Kirksville Area Chamber of Commerce and Tourism Department has made the decision to cancel the Pickers Market they have been planning for several months. The Pickers Market would have been held the 2nd Sunday of each month June thru September in downtown Kirksville. Vendors at the Pickers Market would have been displaying and selling pre-1980 antiques
.
The Pickers Market was modeled after a very successful event in an adjoining state with the hope it would bring additional visitors and shoppers to Kirksville. The Chamber and Tourism staff regrets the need to cancel the event, but at this time there is not enough interest from antique dealers and vendors to move the event forward.
