Brophy Spring Musical – How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying – The show is March 16-18, 7PM, Xavier’s Performing Arts Center.  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 handbook 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.

Pierrepont Finch, who uses a handbook 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.
