Vincentian Academy offers performance

Students in Vincentian Academy’s Musical Theatre Program will perform “The Drowsy Chaperone” from Feb. 21 to 23 and again on Feb. 28 and 29.

This musical within a musical features show-stopping numbers and crazy mix-ups as it tells the story of a middle-aged, asocial musical theater fan and the characters from his favorite show. As he plays the record of his favorite musical — the fictional 1928 hit “The Drowsy Chaperone” — the show comes to life onstage as he wryly comments on the music, the story and the actors.

“The students at Vincentian have really brought this show to life,” musical director Carissa Zozossaid. “Their enthusiasm and excitement for musical theater shines through this show.”

The show will be performed at 7:30 p.m. Feb. 21 and 22; 2 p.m. Feb. 23; and 7:30 p.m. Feb. 28 and 29 at the Greater Pittsburgh Masonic Center, 3579 Masonic Way, off Cemetery Lane in Ross Township.

Tickets cost $12 for the evening shows and $10 for the matinee performance and are available online at or in the lobby of the theater prior to each show.
