FORT WAYNE — Two of Columbia City’s own will appear in the Fort Wayne Civic Theater’s production of “The Drowsy Chaperone.”

Opening this weekend, the musical plays out the imagination of a Broadway theater fanatic. The man in chair, as the lead role is called, allows his fantasies to take over as his dreams come to life and play out in his apartment.

Saturday’s performance is at 8 p.m. with a Sunday matinee at 2 p.m. Ticket prices range from $18 to $26. The show will run through March 17.

Mick Long, a Columbia City native, plays the character of Underling. He is a butler that takes care of an absentminded estate owner.

“We’re playing the characters in the musical, but each character also has the backstory of the actors playing them,” said Long. “That’s probably what is the most fun about any of these roles.”

Mike Pugh, a Columbia City High School graduate, plays the role of Feldzieg, who tries to intervene in a wedding scene.
