The McLean Community Players will present the D.C. area premiere of “The Drowsy Chaperone” this January in McLean’s Alden Theatre.

Director Wade Corder will lead the cast and production team in presenting the musical to D.C. audiences for the very first time. The production runs Jan. 14 – 29 with performances Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m., and Sunday matinees at 3 p.m.

“The Drowsy Chaperone” celebrates American musicals of the Jazz Age. The production tells the story of a die-hard musical-theater fan who plays his favorite cast album-a 1928 smash hit “The Drowsy Chaperone.” As he listens, the musical magically comes to life in his apartment.

“The Drowsy Chaperone” opens Jan. 14 at the McLean Community Center’s Alden Theatre, 1234 Ingleside Ave., McLean. Tickets are $17 – $19 with group rates available.

For more information, call 703-790-9223. Complete show information is available at www.mcleanplayers.org. “The Drowsy Chaperone” is presented through special arrangement with Music Theater International (MTI).
