THE DROWSY CHAPERONE is a stunning modern parody of 1920s American Musical Comedies, vividly presenting the fictional 1928 Broadway Hit musical THE DROWSY CHAPERONE.

LEAP OF FAITH is a stage musical based on the 1992 American movie of the same name, which starred Steve Martin and it is the latest show from North Shore Theatre Company.
The musical tells the story of ‘Reverend’ Jonas Nightingale, a part-time reverend and a full time con artist, who is travelling with his ministry. When his bus breaks down in the middle of small drought-ridden Sweetwater, a Kansas town, Jonas plans an impromptu revival to take the entire town for a ride within 3 days. The some-time reverend pitches a tent and invites the townspeople to his revival; however, a woman named Marla McGowan, is determined to stop Jonas from taking the people’s money.
A story that looks honestly at the fragility of our knowledge about life’s big questions, and yet emphasizes how the miraculous can make the doubter doubt his doubts - a fine topic for a musical!
