How To Succeed in Business Without Really Trying!

April 15th-17th

 Big business means big laughs in this delightfully clever lampoon of life on the corporate ladder.

A satire of big business and all it holds sacred, How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying 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 co-workers, caffeine addiction and, of course, true love.

An irreverent and tuneful romp, jam-packed with sly, swift, and sharp jabs to the funny bone, How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying is a sure fire hit!

PG-

Performed with Special Permission by Musical Theatre International

Fox on The Fairway

 

November 20th and 21st  at 7:00 PM and November 22nd at 2:00 PM

A tribute from Ken Ludwig  to the great English farces of the 1930s and 1940s,

Come see this hilarious farce about golf!  Nov. 20th-Nov. 22nd

Come see this hilarious farce about golf!
Nov. 20th-Nov. 22nd

The Fox On the Fairway takes audiences on a hilarious romp which pulls the rug

out from underneath the stuffy denizens of a private country club.

Filled with mistaken identities, slamming doors, and over-the-top romantic

shenanigans, it’s a furiously paced comedy that recalls the Marx Brothers’

classics. A charmingly madcap adventure about love, life, and man’s

eternal love  affair with… golf.

Rated PG-13

POSTACARDS

If you don’t already know, rehearsals for “The Wizard of Oz”  are well under way and showing us how good this show will be by the time the curtain comes up! Today’s rehearsal  was a full run through of Act 1 and I must say, things are looking great. There is still a lot to do, but the cast is hard at work to make this show a world-class performance! I assure you that even though there are a couple of corny jokes here and there, this show will bring the house down with big laughs and applause! This year’s cast is fantastic portraying this timeless classic, and for the fans of Oz, rest assured we will not let you down!

Check out a short video of our first day of the Jitterbug dance, they had just learned a few parts.  This dance is going to be amazing thanks to student choreographer Taylor!

Help us raise our needed funds!

gofundme-logo

As you may know, all of our shows’ fundraising is completely up to the students!

Our students are completely committed to this program and they have worked hard to make it successful. However, it has been hard raising the funds for The Wizard of Oz. With all of the technical needs of this show it is proposing many financial challenges.

We are well into rehearsals and it is showing great potential. However, without the proper funds, this show will not happen. So this is why we are asking you to show support and help keep our dream alive.  Every little bit helps!!!  Thank you! –
