April 2, 2015

The Patriot Players want to take you back to the Roaring ‘20s.

Liberty High School’s drama program will present a tale of the time “when the champagne flowed while the caviar chilled and all the world was a party.”

Audiences are invited to see the school’s production of “The Drowsy Chaperone,” April 24-25, 30 and May 1-2 in the Landback Auditorium.

“The Drowsy Chaperone” is a parody of American musical comedies of the 1920s, according to a Liberty news release. It follows a neurotic narrator as he leads the audience through a fictional 1928 musical in his dingy apartment.

Seattle actor and 2006 Liberty High School graduate Danny Kam will return to his alma mater to direct the production. Choir teacher Robin Wood will serve as vocal director, while longtime Liberty drama teacher Katherine Klekas will produce. Read more
