Musical director Carissa Zozos said that the Vincentian Academy musical theater program's production of “The Drowsy Chaperone” fits the personality of the students involved in it.
“What they bring to the stage really fits perfectly with the show,” Zozos said.
Vincentian Academy will present the production, which parodies musical comedy in America in the 1920s, Feb. 21-23 and 28-29 at the Greater Pittsburgh Masonic Center, 3579 Masonic Way in Ross Township. Showtimes will be Feb. 21, 22, 28 and 29 at 7:30 p.m. and Feb. 23 at 2 p.m. A special preview day for Catholic school seventh- and eighth-graders and several nursing home and assisted-living communities will be Feb. 20.
Some 60 students are involved with the production. Zozos noted the “phenomenal” support of the parent booster group and the school community. She also noted the benefit of having the production at the center, adding, “It's a beautiful theater that allows us to put on a big show.”
Principal Rita Canton said that the annual production highlights the ways in which students can come together in an “amazing” way.
“Our students are a family, and you will feel the power of their unmistakable bond through their performance on stage and the way in which they bring out the best in each other,” she said.
Tickets are $12 for the evening shows and $10 for the matinee. They may be purchased online at www.vincentianacademy.org or in the lobby prior to each show.
