McMaster Musical Theatre talks ‘The Drowsy Chaperone’ on 93.3

1077398_712909305449230_4581165818321301679_oMcMaster Musical Theatre (MMT) is dedicated to enriching the lives of those in and around the McMaster community through the arts and puts on a musical production every year.

This year the show is The Drowsy Chaperone, a madcap musical-within-a-comedy, with a twist that tells the story of Man in Chair who has an undying love for musical theatre. The Man narrates the show, sharing the story of his favourite production, The Drowsy Chaperone, which comes to life in his very own living room!

Ingie Metwally had the two leads of the show, Taha Arshad and Madeline Mant, come on the Morningfile to chat a bit about the show, their roles, and why everyone should come and check it out! You can hear the full interview below.
