Theater plans new musical

“The Drowsy Chaperone” to be main feature

Palo Alto High School theater department has a variety of upcoming plays such as “The Drowsy Chaperone.” The musical is about a shy, old man living a lonely life in his apartment with only his records of old musicians to keep himself entertained. He shares his favorite musical with the audience, which happens to be “The Drowsy Chaperone,” a wild production from the 20’s.

Senior Will Kast explains that the musical has “a giant cast and features members from theater and choir, even people who are not usually involved in either.”

“The Drowsy Chaperone” opens March 6 with six performances total. The Paly theater department will alsohold One Acts, student directed plays. The One Acts will not have the same production value as full theater productions have, but Kast claims that “they  can be a lot of fun and are a great way for underclassmen or people new to theater to wscore great roles.”

Another upcoming art event is the Paly ceramics class’s plan to construct an eight foot pillar to be presented at the Palo Alto Art Show at the end of the year.
