The theatre department will be performing How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying for the annual musical from January 22-25.

The show is about an ambitious window washer, J. Pierrepont Finch, played by senior Kade Ferguson, trying to make it big in the business world, all with the help of a How-to manual.

“I study the script and think about how he thinks,” Ferguson said, “and learn how he thinks and acts around other people and implement that in my acting.”

Finch enters the business world with the Wicket company under the watchful eye of President J.B. Biggley, played by senior Zane Hudson.

“I feel large and in charge [as Biggley],” Hudson said. “My great grandfather founded it from nothing. All I want is to make it better than ever.”

Finch must recover from an error that he created and convince the board of directors to stay within the company. Find out if he makes it or not for $10 -tickets will be sold at all lunches, online, and at the door. Showtimes are at 8pm for the 22-24 and a 2pm showing on the 25. Break a leg!
