‘The Drowsy Chaperone’ on stage

Youth Musical Theatre will present “The Drowsy Chaperone,” the five-time Tony Award-winning parody of 1920s musical comedy, from May 25 to 28 at the Thousand Oaks Civic Arts Plaza’s Scherr Forum Theatre, 2100 E. T.O. Blvd.

Performances are at 7:30 each night with 2 p.m. Saturday and Sunday matinees.

The farce is about an antisocial, die-hard musical theater fan who plays his favorite cast album, the fictional 1928 hit “The Drowsy Chaperone,” and provides acerbic commentary as the musical comes to life in front of him.

The show is directed by Raymond Saar, veteran of the Broadway stage, who starred in “Phantom of the Opera,” “Les Miserables” and “The King and I.”

Saar serves as the artistic director of Youth Musical Theatre, a nonprofit performing arts group of young performers.

Tickets are $19 to $29 and can be purchased at the TOCAP box office, civicartsplaza.com or Ticketmaster at (800) 653-8000.
