The Grand Theatre

Big Business means big laughs in this clever lampoon of life on the corporate ladder as we follow the rise of J. Pierrepont Finch, who uses a little handbook called How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying to get ahead in the office.  This tune-filled gem, set in 1967, won both the Tony Award for Best Musical and Pulitzer Prize.

We are looking for:

J. Pierrepont Finch - a window washer who applies for a job at the Wold Wide WIcket Company and attempts to climb the 'ladder of success.' Male 18-50
Gatch - a sleazy executive with a penchant for the ladies. Male 30-60
J.B. Biggley - philandering President of World Wide Wicket. Male 30-80
Rosemary - a secretary at the company, becomes Finch's love interest. Female 18-50
Smitty - a cynical secretary on the lookout for a man. Female 18-60
Bud Frump - Biggley's nephew and scheming employee. Male 18-50
Miss Jones - J.B.'s stuffy secretary who is abrupt and tough. Female 25-65
Mr. Twimble - a fussy, old-fashioned supervisor of the mailroom. Male 40-70
Wally Womper - Chief Executive Officer and former window washer. Male 30-70
Hedy - a voluptuous woman adored by all of the men. Female 18-45
Ensemble Dancers - Executives, Secretaries, male and female 15-70

Rehearsals begin March 5.  Performances May 3-6 at the State.  For more info call CVTG or email
