Comedy will be king this year when the Warwick Valley High School Drama Club presents the two productions in the 2019-2020 theater season.

'Almost, Maine'

This fall, the Drama Club will bring "Almost, Maine" to WVHS for the first time. This romantic comedy, which is the most-produced high school play of 2019 according to National Public Radio (NPR), is comprised of nine short plays that explore love and loss in a remote, mythical almost-town called Almost.

Filled with laughs and deep sentimentality, this will be a wonderful way to spend an autumn evening.

Show dates are Friday, Nov. 1, and Saturday, Nov. 2.

'The Drowsy Chaperone'

This spring, the Drama Club will present their second debut for the year, the musical within a comedy hit, "The Drowsy Chaperone." Winner of five Tony Awards, including best book and best original score, "The Drowsy Chaperone" is a loving send-up of the Jazz Age musical, featuring one show-stopping song and dance number after another.

Lively and farcical, "The Drowsy Chaperone" is a masterful meta-musical, poking fun at all the tropes that characterize the musical theatre genre. If you are a musical theater lover, then this musical is for you.

"The Drowsy Chaperone" will play on March 13 and 14, 2020.

The productions will once again be directed by the club’s advisor, Nick DiLeo. Joining him will be Donna Nestor as producer, Beth Maisonet as choreographer and Chris Persad and Noreen Hanson as musical directors.

Further information regarding these two productions will be made available on the WVCSD website as the productions near.
