The Canyon Theatre Guild Presents ‘The Drowsy Chaperone’ and ‘Around the World in 80 Days’

By Signal Contributor

Last update: Monday, September 26th, 2016

The Canyon Theatre Guild is proud to present “The Drowsy Chaperone” on the main stage. Winner of five Tony Awards when it hit Broadway in 2006, this show is for people who both love and hate the American musicals of the Jazz Age. The show’s narrator, a mousy, agoraphobic Broadway fanatic seeking a cure for the blues, listens to a recording of an obscure 1928 musical comedy, “The Drowsy Chaperone.” As he listens to this rare recording, he and the audience are transported into the musical. As the characters appear, both the narrator and the audience are taken on a 90-minute roller coaster ride of song, dance and laughter. Performances are Fridays, 8 p.m. on Sept. 23, Oct. 21, Oct. 28, Saturdays, 2 p.m. Oct. 8, Oct. 22, Saturdays, 8 p.m, Sept. 24, Oct. 1, Oct. 15, Oct. 29 and Sundays, 2 p.m., Oct. 2, Oct. 16, Oct. 23.

And on the CTG Family Theatre Stage — Stampeding elephants! Raging typhoons! Runaway trains! Hold onto your seats for the original amazing race, “Around the World in 80 Days.” Join fearless adventurer Phileas Fogg and his faithful manservant as they race to beat the clock. Phileas Fogg has agreed to an outrageous wager that puts his fortune and his life at risk. With his resourceful servant Passepartout, Fogg sets out to circle the globe in an unheard — of 80 days. But his every step is dogged by a detective who thinks he’s a robber on the run. Danger, romance, and comic surprises abound in this whirlwind of a show as five actors portraying 39 characters traverse seven continents in Mark Brown’s adaptation of one of the great adventures of all time. Performances are Friday, Oct. 14, 8 p.m., Saturdays, 2 p.m. on Sept. 24, Oct. 1, Oct. 15, Oct. 29, Saturdays, 8 p.m. on Oct. 8, Oct. 22, Sundays at 2 p.m. on Sept. 25, Oct. 9 and Sunday, 6 p.m., Oct. 23 and Oct. 30.
