Quick As A Wink's The Drowsy Chaperone an entertaining romp for entire family to enjoy


WINDSOR, N.S. — Quick As A Wink Theatre's rendition of The Drowsy Chaperone, a musical within a comedy, transported audiences to the 1920s during opening weekend.

The show is set in present day, in the apartment of Man in Chair, who is feeling sad and puts on his favourite musical to brighten the mood.

The show, held at the Fountain Performing Arts Centre at King's-Edgehill School, features the talents of many familiar faces from Hants and Kings counties.

The show stars Wolfville's Mike Butler as Man in Chair, Becca Guilderson as bride Janet Van De Graaff and Tyler Hall as groom Robert Martin. Halifax's Sherri Bezanson takes on the role of Janet Van De Graaff's Drowsy Chaperone. Rounding out the cast are Kerri Beazley as Mrs. Tottendale, David Foley as Underling the butler, Laura Gillis as George the best man, Alan Slipp as Feldzieg the producer, Joanna Bond as Kitty the flapper, and Justin Brown as Aldolpho the Latin lover. The gangsters are played by Max Cole and Issac McWhinnie; Thea Burton portrays the superintendent, and Kerrianne Ryan is Trix the aviator. The ensemble consists of Kaela Biro, Lana Dauphinee, Nicole Grass, and Callie Mackintosh.

A live pit band accompanies the show and is comprised of Danielle Chute, Kelly Ells, Kerri Dorey, Laura Allen, Laurie O'Brien, Daniel Edmonds, Graham Howes, and Jim Horne.

There's still three more chances to catch the production. Showtimes are 7 p.m. on Feb. 2-3 and 2 p.m. on Feb. 3.
