Clay Aiken to Star in Drowsy Chaperone in NC

North Carolina native Clay Aiken, who was the “American Idol” runner-up in 2003, will be portraying the role of Man in Chair in North Carolina Theatre’s production of The Drowsy Chaperone. Aiken previously made his Broadway debut in Monty Python’s Spamalot as Sir Robin, and started on the NCT stage back in 1996 as a young adult.

Beth Leavel will join him, playing the role that she created on Broadway and won a Tony Award for, The Drowsy Chaperone herself.

A rare combination of unprecedented originality and outrageous comedy, The Drowsy Chaperone boldly addresses a great unspoken desire in all of our hearts: to be entertained. If you’ve ever sat in a dark theatre and thought, “Dear Lord in heaven, please let it be good,” this is the show for you! It all begins when a die-hard musical theater fan plays his favorite cast album on his turntable, and the musical literally bursts to life in his living room, telling the rambunctious tale of a brazen Broadway starlet trying to find, and keep, her true love.

This production runs from May 7-12 in the Raleigh Memorial Auditorium at the Duke Energy Center for the Performing Arts. For tickets and more information, visit:!
