Don’t Go to Sleep on 'Drowsy' Home Made Theater Opens 29th Season

By Staff Report | Entertainment

SARATOGA SPRINGS — Home Made Theater (HMT) opens their 29th season with The Drowsy Chaperone, a winner of five Tony and seven drama desk awards. The show runs on weekends October 11 through October 27 at the Spa Little Theater in Saratoga Spa State Park.


The show centers around a die-hard musical theater fan at home who plays his favorite cast album, but unlike your living room (presumably) the musical bursts to life all around him.

Incorporating mistaken identities, dream sequences, spit takes, an unflappable English butler, an absent-minded dowager, a ditzy chorine, a harried best man and of course, the requisite “drowsy”  (read: tipsy) chaperone, The Drowsy Chaperone tells the rambunctious tale of a brazen Broadway starlet trying to find and keep her true love.

The Director of The Drowsy Chaperone is HMT veteran Dawn Oesch. The cast includes JJ Buechner as Man in Chair, Richard Jones as Robert Martin, Christine Meglino as Janet Van De Graaff, Shawn Morgan as Adolpho and Lesley O'Donnell as The Drowsy Chaperone. Rounding out the cast are Andrea Burger, Jessica Byrnes Cheong, Chris Cucinella, Dianne DeSantis, David Dixon, Nik Gatzendorfer, Stephanie Goodman, KT Hart, Darlene Kelly, Johnny Martinez, Michael McDermott, Deb Otto-Jones and Arlette St. Romain.

Performances are Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m. on October 11, 12, 18, 19, 25 and 26. Matinees are on Sundays at 2 p.m. on October 20 and 27.

Ticket prices are $26 and $29. An optional dinner package is available at Longfellows Restaurant prior to evening performances and following matinees for an additional $21.99 per person plus tax and gratuity. Tickets can be purchased online at, in person during box office hours or by calling HMT at (518) 587-4427
