the record of her favorite musical, the (fictional) 1928 hit 
The Drowsy Chaperone. The show comes to life onstage 
as she wryly comments on the music, story, and actors.

production was ranked #18 out of 56 productions in the 
musical theatre competition.

High School) as Underling, senior Riley Luna (St. Francis 
High School) as Robert Martin, senior Carson Christ (St. 
Francis High School) as George, freshman Chris Johnson 
(St. Francis High School) as Feldzig, sophomore McKenna

Gangster 1, senior Skylar Robinson as Gangster 2, junior 
Ethan Qua (St. Francis High School) as Adolpho, senior 
Sierra Curren as Janet Van De Graf, senior Sarah Lopez as 
the Drowsy Chaperone, freshman Afton Okwu as Trix, and 
freshman Anisa Lopez as the Superintendent. 

 Members of the ensemble and dance casts include: 
freshmen Alexis Alvarado, Claire Cook, Vivian Gonzalez,

Klarissa Barriga, Elisia Bendy, Kathleen Cramer, Caroline 
Dragos, Maritza DiRito, Amanda Hill, Precious Perlas, and

About Alverno Heights Academy

progressive Catholic, college preparatory school 
dedicated to its mission of empowering each young 
woman to be exactly the person she wants to be. 
Located on the property of the former Barlow Estate

to its mission by encouraging each of their young 
women to be who they imagine. For more information
