Our Summer 2023 Production is....The Drowsy Chaperone

Urbandale Community Theatre is thrilled to announce our summer 2023 musical production is…The Drowsy Chaperone!
When a die-hard theatre fan plays his favorite cast album, the characters come to life in this hilarious musical farce. Mix in two lovers on the eve of their wedding, a bumbling best man, a desperate theatre producer, a not-so-bright hostess, two gangsters posing as pastry chefs, a misguided Don Juan and an intoxicated chaperone, and you have the ingredients for an evening of madcap delight.
With references to the 1920’s Jazz Age Musicals and endless doses of every comedic energy you can imagine there is bit of everything for everyone and UCT is so excited to bring this to the stage.
The Drowsy Chaperone is the winner of 5 Tony Awards, including Best Book and Best Original Score.

Urbandale Community Theatre is excited to announce CD Adamson as the Director for our summer 2023 production of The Drowsy Chaperone.

CD is in his ninth year as an Associate Professor of Musical Theatre at Central College in Pella and has been directing and choreograping (in over eight states!) since 1992. He has a wealth of knowledge and theatrical experience both on and off the stage. UCT and the Des Moines community are so fortunate for this opportunity to collaborate with CD and can’t wait for next summer.

Thank you for all the talented individuals who have submitted their Director applications. As always, the talent in this community is truly astounding! We hope you will consider supporting this production in another vital production, cast, or backstage role.
