Savoyards - How to succeed in business without really trying

The witty and irreverent musical with the long name, HOW TO SUCCEED IN BUSINESS WITHOUT REALLY TRYING opens at the Iona Performing Arts Centre (IPAC) 26 September, 2015 for 8 performances only.

HOW TO SUCCEED is sure to delight and entertain audiences. As one of the few musicals to win a Pulitzer Prize, 9 Tony Awards (nominated for 11 more) and several revivals, the show’s producers, Savoyards Musical Theatre Company, said they were thrilled to be bringing this community based production to Brisbane this September.

“HOW TO SUCCEED is comically brilliant, classic musical comedy telling the story of how one young man, Pierrepont Finch, uses a little book titled HOW TO SUCCEED IN BUSINESS WITHOUT REALLY TRYING to work his way up from window washer in a giant company to CEO – all in the space of two weeks. Along the way he meets and falls in love with Rosemary, sidesteps the boss’ nephew Bud Frump and avoids a dangerous entanglement with the boss’ girlfriend, Hedy LaRue. All seems to go well until his one ‘big idea’ goes terribly wrong and he faces disaster.

Tickets on sale from Wednesday, 19 August at www.savoyards.com.au or by phoning 3893 4321.
