Spring Musical

Looking forward to another City High theater production? The award winning Broadway musical, How To Succeed in Business Without Really Trying, will be produced by the City High Drama Department.

Troy Peters, director, Janet Schlapkohl, costume and assistant director and Doug Lestina, tech director, will be in charge of the show.

“We are looking for bold actors with a lot of confidence,” Peters said, “that aren’t afraid and timid.”

The musical is based on the satirical book by Shepherd Mead. Peters’ plans to follow the plot as closely as possible.

“It’s about a window washer who finds the book How To Succeed in Business Without Really Trying, he uses the ideas in the book to get ahead in his job,” Peters said, “that’s a major theme in the musical, getting ahead morally or by other means.”

The musical will have big dance numbers and upbeat songs. Along with important life lessons. Auditions will be held the first week in February, and the performance in early April.

“I hope people that are not familiar with the music give it a chance,” said Peters, “it’s bound to be entertaining.”
