The Locust Valley High School Jesters entertained audiences during three stellar performances of “The Drowsy Chaperone” March 15-17. Set in the Jazz Age, the musical provided the perfect stage to highlight the singing, dancing and acting talents of the Locust Valley High School actors.
The Jesters’ comedic timing resulted in roaring laughter from the audience, and applause for their singing was endless.
The story opened with a man in a chair putting on his favorite record, the cast recording of a fictitious 1928 musical. The Jesters then brought the record to life with the man, played by Locust Valley High School senior Alim Merchant, pausing the record to share his commentary on the actors and the plot during various scenes.
This musical within a comedy brought energy to the Locust Valley High School auditorium, and the Jesters should be proud of the professional performance they presented.
