SADDLE RIVER, N.J. -- Saddle River Day School students are performing "The Drowsy Chaperone" musical.

The performances will be at 7 p.m. Friday and Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday.

The performance is presented by the Saddle River Day School Performing Arts Department.

"The Drowsy Chaperone" is a musical with a book by Bob Martin and Don McKellar and music and lyrics by Lisa Lambert and Greg Morrison. It is a parody of American musical comedies of the 1920s. The story concerns a middle-aged, asocial musical theater fan 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, story and actors.

The play debuted in 1998 at The Rivoli in Toronto and opened on Broadway in 2006. The show was nominated for multiple Broadway (2006) and London (2008) theater awards, winning five Tony Awards and seven Drama Desk Awards. The show has had major productions in Toronto, Los Angeles, New York, London and Japan, as well as two North American tours.

The Saddle River Day School is at 147 Chestnut Ridge Road.
