News   "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy" Star Tapped for The Drowsy Chaperone in Cape Cod
 
British TV and film actor Simon Jones, best known for his role in the cult series "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy," has been cast alongside JoAnne Worley in The Cape Playhouse's summer staging of The Drowsy Chaperone.

To be directed by Pamela Hunt with choreography by Shea Sullivan, performances are set to run June 30-July 11.

Jones will play the awkward, musical-loving Man in Chair in the comedy, and Worley will reprise the role of Mrs. Tottendale, which she played on Broadway. The Casey Nicholaw-directed show was nominated for 13 Tony Awards and won five including Best Original Score and Best Book.

The Drowsy Chaperone features music and lyrics by Greg Morrison and Lisa Lambert and a book by Bob Martin and Don McKellar. The story follows a zany musical theatre devotee and his reimagining of a hit jazz musical from the 1920's.

Jones, also featured in the British TV series "Brideshead Revisited," has numerous stage credits both in the U.S and the U.K. On Broadway he has been seen in Blithe Spirit, Waiting in the Wings and The Real Thing.
