Having Drowsy Chaperone withdrawals? Check out our photo feature!

Squabbalogic’s acclaimed production of The Drowsy Chaperone closed at the Hayes Theatre Co recently, after enjoying a sold out season.

Presented at the newly refurbished (and renamed) venue in Potts Point, The Drowsy Chaperone was a camp and loving parody of 1920s musicals starring some of Sydney’s most sought after music theatre performers including Hilary Cole, Jay James-Moody, Tom Sharah and Michele Lansdown.

We at the AussieTheatre office were lamenting the show’s closure (short seasons are part of the Hayes Theatre Co model, and while they are proving very successful, there aren’t too many opportunities to go back for more!) and wanted to relive some of the magic.

So, we put this little monkey of a show on a pedestal (!) and created this photo feature to cheer us up. We hope you enjoy these wonderful production images from The Drowsy Chaperone, taken by Michael Francis of Francis Fotography.
