[505] ‘Drowsy Chaperone’ musical enlivens MTSU’s Tucker Theatre April 9-13

MURFREESBORO — Don’t miss the family-friendly musical comedy hitting the stage this week at MTSU’s Tucker Theatre with the university’s latest production, “The Drowsy Chaperone.”

The Tony Award-winning musical is a show within a show, complete with 1920s stock characters romping across the set while a bashful Broadway fanatic provides running commentary.

Curtain times are 7:30 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday, April 9-12, and 2 p.m. Sunday, April 13. Advance general admission tickets are $10 each and $5 for K-12 students and senior citizens when purchased online and $12 and $7 at the door. MTSU students with valid IDs will be admitted free.

Tickets are still available for the MTSU Arts production at Tickets for “The Drowsy Chaperone” also are available online at You can call 888-71-TICKETS (888-718-4253) 9 a.m.-9 p.m. Monday through Friday to order tickets by phone.

MTSU senior Joshua Hosale of Antioch, Tenn., plays “Man in Chair” and narrates the on-stage festivities he’s imagining in his dreary apartment as he plays the soundtrack of his favorite — nonexistent — 1928 musical, “The Drowsy Chaperone.”

Fellow senior Alicia Pickett of Chattanooga plays the dramatic and usually tipsy “Chaperone” who swans across the stage and in and out of the “Man’s” imagination.
