Laugh Along with the Funniest Musical on Broadway

Georgian Court University Sponsors Theater Excursion to The Drowsy Chaperone

Lakewood, N.J., Apr. 27, 2007—Join Georgian Court University for a musical within a comedy in a theater excursion to The Drowsy Chaperone on Saturday, June 9, at 2:00 p.m. on Broadway.

Directed by Casey Nicholaw, choreographer of Monty Python’s Spamalot, The Drowsy Chaperone begins when a diehard musical theater fan plays his favorite cast album on his turntable. The music literally bursts to life in his living room, telling the story of a brazen Broadway starlet looking for true love. The show won the most (five) 2006 Tony Awards of any Broadway musical, and seven Drama Desk Awards, including Best Musical.

The theater excursion is $150 per person and includes orchestra seating, round-trip transportation from the campus to the Marquis Theatre, and snacks. Enjoy lunch on your own before the show in one of the many nearby restaurants. The bus will leave the Seventh Street Gate on the Lakewood campus at 10:00 a.m. with an additional departure from the Garden State Parkway Cheesequake rest area between 10:30 a.m. and 11:30 a.m. For further information and to reserve a spot, please contact the Office of Conferences and Special Events at 732.987.2263 or
