Our next Musical production will be
'How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying'
What is it?
A Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning musical, it's a story about the triumph of the common man amid the buffoonery of big business.
What's it about?
When a restless, creative, and ambitious window washer named J. Pierrepont Finch happens upon a book entitled 'How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying', he decides to begin his rise up the corporate ladder. With the book’s instructions and a dose of his own cleverness, Finch starts by landing a job in the mailroom at the World Wide Wicket Company, before quickly gaining promotions and outsmarting his scheming, snivelling rival, Frump - who also happens to be the boss's nephew- until finally reaching the very top of the organisation.
From the very beginning, Finch has had the love and support of Rosemary, a marriage-minded secretary who recognizes Finch’s potential, and finds his innocent demeanour endearing. But in his single-minded pursuit of the top job, Finch is in danger of discounting Rosemary’s love. In a moment of crisis, Finch’s manual to success can no longer help him: he must rely on his own wits, and ultimately, his heart, to save the day.
