About the Show...
It's been a number of years since Dover has seen a traditional large-scale musical at a local community theater, but director Chris Polo and music director Eddie Cohee aim to change that with their June production of The Drowsy Chaperone at the Kent County Theatre Guild.
The Drowsy Chaperone, by Lisa Lambert, Don McKellar, Bob Martin and Greg Morrison, is a madcap show-within-a-show that parodies American musical comedies of the 1920s. The Broadway production starred musical sensation (and TV's Bunheads lead) Sutton Foster and took home five Tony Awards in 2006, including Best Book of a Musical and Best Original Score.
Although Polo has never taken on a musical, she's directed regular-season shows at the Guild since 1992. She also has experience working on a different type of musical production: she, husband Mike Polo, and close friend Bruce Leister wrote, produced and appeared in seven Delaware Unleashed musical revues for the Guild.
Polo says that doing a big, traditional musical at the Guild is something she's dreamed about for years. "And a true bonus is having Eddie Cohee as musical director," she says. "I've worked with him on our Delaware Unleashed productions and other musical revues at the Guild, as well as on regular-season shows, and he's an incredible asset to any production. So I know this is going to be a fantastic experience and a terrific show."
