Georgia Engel will reprise her Broadway role of Mrs. Tottendale in the musical comedy, which will play the Maine venue June 9-26.

Casey Hushion will direct.

The show-within-a-show (with Tony-winning book by Bob Martin and Don McKellar and a Tony-winning score by Lisa Lambert and Greg Morrison) concerns a show-tune addict (named Man in Chair) who shares with the audience his favorite cast album — 1928's fictional The Drowsy Chaperone. As he plays the record, the vintage musical comes to life around him.

The Oguqnuit season will continue with The Sound of Music, June 30-July 24; Sunset Boulevard, July 28-Aug. 14; Monty Python's Spamalot, Aug. 18-Sept. 11; and Chicago, Sept. 15-Oct. 24 (with Sally Struthers in the role of Matron “Mama” Morton).
