2017 Spring Musical
How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying
WED-SAT, MAY 3-6 | 7:30 PM
SUN, MAY 7 | 2 PM
LAXSON AUDITORIUM

Big business means big laughs in this delightfully clever lampoon of life on the corporate ladder, presented by the Department of Music and Theatre. A tune-filled comic gem that took Broadway by storm, winning both the Tony Award for Best Musical and a Pulitzer Prize, How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying boasts an exhilarating score by Frank Loesser (Guys and Dolls) including “I Believe in You” and “Brotherhood of Man.” A slick satire of big business and all it holds sacred, this 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 executive, tackling such familiar but potent dangers as the aggressively compliant “company man,” the office party, backstabbing coworkers, caffeine addiction and, of course, true love. Music and lyrics by Frank Loesser, book by Abe Burrows, Willie Gilbert and Jack Weinstock. Based on Shepherd Mead’s book, How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying

$20 Premium | $16 Adult | $14 Seniors | $10 Youth & CSU, Chico Students
