Originally created as a skit for a bachelor party and now a beloved musical within a comedy, Huntley High School will present "The Drowsy Chaperone" at 7 p.m. Fridays, April 20 and 27, and Saturdays, April 21 and 28, along with a 3 p.m. matinee April 22 only.

The story is about a lonely man who sits in his dingy apartment listening to old musicals on his record player. As he plays his favorite show, "The Drowsy Chaperone," he narrates its plot and history as the show is manifested in his living room.

The audience is transported to a 1928 Broadway theater and into a rollicking performance crammed full of every gag and gimmick from the golden age of musicals. The show is 75 minutes long with no intermission.

Tickets cost $8 at the door or $6.75 before the performance online at

The music and theater program students will perform the spring musical at the Huntley High School Performing Arts Center, 13719 Harmony Road in Huntley.
