Featuring diamonds, disguises, and a dead body, LUCKY STIFF is sure to keep the audience in stitches with its cast of quirky characters. The Shenandoah Valley Governor’s School Theatre Department is proud to present this hilarious, high-energy farce.
Nothing ever happens to shy shoe salesman Harry Witherspoon. Nothing, that is, until a six million dollar inheritance comes his way — with strings attached. Harry must take the body of his dead uncle on a dream vacation to Monte Carlo, or else forfeit the fortune to charity. Annabel Glick, a tenacious representative of the Universal Dog Home of Brooklyn, is right on his heels, ready to pounce if he makes a mistake, and she isn’t the only one after the money. Can Harry spend a week cruising around casinos with a corpse and not get caught? From the writing team of Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty, who also created SEUSSICAL and ONCE ON THIS ISLAND, LUCKY STIFF features such musical numbers as “Something Funny’s Going On,” “Times Like This,” “Speaking French,” and “Good to Be Alive.”
LUCKY STIFF is based on “The Man Who Broke The Bank At Monte Carlo” by Michael Butterworth and was first produced by Playwrights Horizons, Inc. Off-Broadway in 1988.
Presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI).
