Event Description

Springfield Little Theatre will present the musical "How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying" at the Landers Theatre Thursday, May 4 through Sunday, May 20. Performances start at 7:30pm on Thursdays-Saturdays and at 2pm on Saturdays and Sundays. Power, ambition, greed…. It’s just another day at the office in this classic satire of big business that took Broadway by storm, winning seven Tony Awards and the 1962 Pulitzer Prize for Drama. The musical follows the rise of J. Pierrepont Finch 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 chairman of the board, tackling such familiar but potent dangers as the aggressively compliant “company man,” the office party, backstabbing coworkers, caffeine addiction, and true love. The show's score by Frank Loesser includes classics such as “I Believe in You,” “Brotherhood of Man,” and “The Company Way.” An irreverent romp jam-packed with sly, swift, and sharp jabs to the funny bone, the production is a delightfully clever lampoon of life on the corporate ladder! SLT’s "How to Succeed in Business without Really Trying" features a cast of 49 and is directed and choreographed by Chyrel Love Miller with music direction by Susan Gravatt. The show is appropriate for audience members age 13 and over.
