Virtual Productions/TBA Projected Dates: Early October and Early March
Monarch Theatre will be creating a variety of ORIGINAL and devised theatrical pieces during the 2020-21 school year.
Depending on how the quarter system affects our ability to rehearse and create original works, it is our hope to have a performance EACH quarter that may be a mixture of curricular and extra-curricular participants.
Thespian Directed Zoom Play Projected Date: Early December
Thespian Leaders will direct an online format play. Auditions will be open to all students.
The script has not been chosen yet, but it will be in a vignette format that will easily translate to a virtual performance.
The Drowsy Chaperone
The Drowsy Chaperone is a loving send-up of the Jazz Age musical, featuring one show-stopping song and dance number after another. A Man in a Chair appears on stage and puts on his favorite record: the cast recording of a fictitious 1928 musical. The recording comes to life and The Drowsy Chaperone begins as the man in the chair looks on. 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.
