Additional information:  With the houselights down, a man in a chair appears on stage and puts on his favorite record — the cast recording of a fictitious 1928 musical. The recording comes to life and The Drowsy Chaperone begins as the man in the chair looks on. Mix in two lovers on the eve of their wedding, a bumbling best man, a desperate theatre producer, a not-so-bright hostess, two gangsters posing as pastry chefs, a misguided Don Juan, and an intoxicated chaperone, and you have the ingredients for an evening of glamorous, hilarious delight.

Don’t miss it as the quirky characters in this madcap musical burst into life on stage! Get your tickets and join us for The Drowsy Chaperone!

Comedy/Improv News
On March 6th, Mira Costa’s ComedySportz team played in an away game against Hawthorne High School. It was a fun night of comedic improv rivalry. Final score:  Costa 23, Hawthorne 24.

On March 8th, Mira Costa hosted a comedy improv match vs. local senior citizens group, the Joslyn Jokers. After a wildly funny back and forth competition that combined teams of Costa students with the seniors, the final score was a tie: 29 to 29. The students did a fantastic job working with the guest team, and everyone had a great time!

Final home match this year:  Fri., May 31 – Costa Seniors vs. Alumni
