Play Inc. presents ‘How to Succeed in Business without Really Trying’

Play Inc. Community Theatre will perform ‘How to Succeed in Business without Really Trying’ at 7 p.m. Friday, April 25; 7 p.m. Saturday, April 26; and 3 p.m. Sunday, April 27 at the Richard G. Performing Arts Center at Cambridge-Isanti High School.

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. Pierpont 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 co-workers, caffeine addiction, and of course, true love.

This wonderful musical has been on Broadway three times: first with Robert Morse as the lead, in the 1990s Matthew Broderick stepped into the office, and finally two years ago, Harry Potter himself, Daniel Radcliffe made the corporate climb.

Members of the cast and Play Inc.’s Board of Directors invite you to share in this memorable theatrical experience.
