The Carthage Music Department presents “How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying” Feb. 23-25 in the Visual and Performing Arts Lab, located in the H.F. Johnson Center for the Fine Arts.
“How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying” is the story of J. Pierrepont Finch, a window washer in New York City, with big aspirations. He dreams of being a big shot executive but is unsure of how to reach this goal until he reads a book titled “How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying.” He enters the World Wide Wickets company in search of a job and attempts to make his way to the top using the book’s instructions. Along the way, he meets a cast of colorful characters who help and/or hinder him. Among them are J.B. Biggley, the company’s boisterous and proud president; his nephew, the lazy and arrogant Bud Frump; and the lovely secretary Rosemary Pilkington, who has romantic aspirations of her own. Will Finch rise to the top? Find out in this charming classic by Broadway legend Frank Loesser.
This Carthage production is directed by Prof. Thomas Novak and is accompanied by Melissa Cardamone.
