Starting this week we are going to bring you the character bios of the cast of characters of “How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying”. Set in the 1960’s, we are looking for a mix of strong singers and dancers to play executives and secretaries, all with the style and swagger of the cast of Mad Men. Firing it all off is the character that sets the production into motion, J. Pierpont Finch. (Tenor: age 20-30)
J. Pierpont (or Ponty for short) facilitates his own meteoric rise from window washer to chairman of the World Wide Wicket Company by following the rules he reads in an informative little book. With quite an opportunistic, self-centred personality, the role requires an actor with natural charisma and charm to keep the audience on his side. He also falls in love with Rosemary, an idealistic secretary at the firm.
Auditions for the show are May 21st & 23rd at the Flickinger Center for the Performing Arts. If cast, actors must be available for all rehearsals and performance dates. If you have any questions, please feel free to leave a comment. We will get back with you promptly!
