THEATER | "The Drowsy Chaperone" 

I have a good buddy who has an intense dislike of musicals simply because he feels it's unrealistic for people to burst into song to narrate what's happening. Another of my friends wishes that life was actually lived that way, and frequently sings what she means to say. These two once had me wondering what it would be like if we acted like characters in musicals. You can get the idea by attending RAPA artist-in-residence group OFC Creations' staging of "The Drowsy Chaperone," a Tony-winning musical parody of American musical comedies of the 1920's, in which a middle-aged musical-theater fan plays the record of his favorite musical, the (fictional) 1928 hit, "The Drowsy Chaperone." The show comes to life in his apartment as he conducts a wry commentary on the components of the production.

OFC's production of the musical features young-adult performers, from those entering high school to college graduates, hailing from Pittsford, Webster, Victor, Greece, and Rochester. The production will take place at RAPA (727 E. Main St.) on Thursday, August 8, through Saturday, August 10, at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $10 and available online at ofccreations.com. Remaining tickets will be available at the door one hour before curtain. For more information, call 325-3366.
