 Entertainment Events
Mankato Events The Drowsy Chaperone, Musical
Performances are 7:30 p.m. April 10-12 ' 17-19, and 2 p.m. April 13 ' 19 (altered schedule due to Easter holiday), in the Ted Paul Theatre

Music and lyrics by Lisa Lambert and Greg Morrison, book by Bob Martin and Don McKellar.
Sponsored by Community Bank Mankato, Mankato Ford and Radio Mankato

A rare combination of unprecedented originality and blinding talent, The Drowsy Chaperone boldly addresses a great unspoken desire in all of our hearts: to be entertained. If you've ever sat in a dark theatre and thought, Dear Lord in heaven, please let it be good, this is the show for you! It all begins when a die-hard musical-theater fan plays his favorite cast album on his turntable, and the musical literally bursts to life in his living room, telling the rambunctious tale of a brazen Broadway starlet trying to find, and keep, her true love. This is its Minnesota State Mankato debut.

Individual tickets for The Drowsy Chaperone are $22 regular, $19 for senior citizens, youth 16 and under and groups of 15 or more, $15 for current Minnesota State students.

Mankato Events Maverick Musings, Play
Performances are 7:30 p.m. April 23-26 in the Andreas Theatre

By playwriting class students

An evocative evening of short plays (including one-acts and ten-minute scenes) culled from the newly and permanently installed playwriting class, under the tutelage of award-winning playwright and alumnus Bruce Jones, Maverick Musings promises to be a diverse and penetrating look into the minds of our theatre majors. While some might think of a maverick as a wild, athletic beast, the word is also defined as an unorthodox or independent-minded person. Go Theatre Mavs! Individual tickets for this show are $10 regular, $9 for senior citizens, youth 16 and under and groups of 15 or more, $8 for current Minnesota State students.
