WESTPORT - The Westport Central School Drama Club will be presenting the hilariously funny musical comedy "How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying" on Friday March 27 and Saturday March 28 at 7pm, and Sunday March 29 at 3 p.m., in the Bulles Auditorium at Westport Central School.
More than 30 seventh through twelfth grade students are involved in this year's production, which centers around a young window washer, J. Pierrepont Finch, who discovers a book on how to succeed in business. He decides to follow the suggestions in the book, which takes him deep into the corporate offices of the World Wide Wicket Company. In about a week, Finch is climbing the corporate ladder, meeting a myriad of quirky characters along the way, with hilarious results. "How to Succeed" was written by the same team that wrote "Guys and Dolls," Frank Loesser and Abe Burrows. The show made Matthew Broderick famous, earning him his first Tony Award in the mid 1990's. The show is sure to delight audiences of all ages and is appropriate for children as well as adults.
