Exit 82 Theatre Company opens the Exit 82 Studio Theater on Main Street in Toms River on July 6, 2018 with the company’s revival of the Tony Award winning musical, The Drowsy Chaperone. The space offers a unique, intimate theater experience for its viewers. It is also BYOB for patrons over the age of 21.
“Our hope is for the Exit 82 Studio Theater to become a staple of our community and give a whole new meaning to the phrase ‘community theater,'” says Founder and Executive Producer, Keely Davenport. “We want the Exit 82 Studio Theater to be a place for everyone in our community to not only be entertained but join us to be creative and feel accepted.”
The Drowsy Chaperone features one show-stopping song and dance number after another. In addition, it won five Tony Awards, including Best Book and Best Original Score.Taking place in a New York apartment, a man takes us through 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.
The New York Magazine hails it as “The Perfect Broadway Musical.” The Drowsy Chaperone is a masterful meta-musical, poking fun at all the tropes that characterize the musical theater genre. Furthermore, “It takes you to another world and it gives you a tune to carry in your head.”
The Drowsy Chaperone runs every weekend in July. This includes Fridays and Saturdays at 8p.m. and Sundays at 2p.m. Tickets are general admission and are $25 for adults and $23 for seniors. Group rates and ADA seating are also available. The Exit 82 Studio Theater is located at 73 Main Street, Toms River, NJ. Tickets on sale now at www.exit82theatre.com.
