November 17-19 – Lucky Stiff

Posted by  //  October 19, 2016  //  Arts & Live Music, Calendar of Events

7:30pm, Cortland High School Auditorium. Fall musical presented by Cortland High School Theatre. Based on the novel The Man Who Broke The Bank At Monte Carlo by Michael Butterworth, Lucky Stiff is an offbeat, hilarious murder mystery farce complete with mistaken identities, six million bucks in diamonds, and a corpse in a wheelchair. The story revolves around an unassuming English shoe salesman who is forced to take the embalmed body of his recently murdered uncle on a vacation to Monte Carlo. Should he succeed in passing his uncle off as alive, Harry Witherspoon stands to inherit $6,000,000. If not, the money goes to the Universal Dog Home of Brooklyn, or else his uncle’s gun-toting ex! Featuring a tuneful Flaherty and Ahrens score, an ensemble cast of zany characters, and small rock combo orchestra, Lucky Stiff is an audience charmer. Tickets $8 at the door.
