Power, sex, ambition, greed...it's just another day at the office. From the authors of "Guys And Dolls" comes one of the most delightfully irreverent musicals of all time. A satire of big business and all it holds sacred, "How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying" follows the rise of J. Pierrepont Finch (Diogo deSousa, Mansfield, MA), who uses a little handbook called "How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying" to climb the corporate ladder from lowly window washer to high-powered executive, facing such familiar but potent dangers as the aggressively compliant "company man," the office party, backstabbing co-workers, caffeine addiction and, of course, true love. On the way he must outsmart the big boss J.B. Biggley (Sean Leehan, Plainville, MA) and J.B's ambitious nephew Bud Frump (Matthew Corbett, Attleboro, MA) all while romancing the lovely Rosemary Pilkington (Madeleine Canfield, Foxboro, MA).
Following its recent Tony-winning Broadway revival in 2011 and winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Drama, "How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying" melds wit, comedy, and romance together to perfection and is certain to entertain all who experience it. We invite you to join us for an enchanting and hilarious evening of timeless theatre fun!
