CRANFORD - The rollicking musical comedy How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying, music and lyrics by Frank Loesser, book by Abe Burrows, Jack Weinstock and Willie Gilbert is the final show in the theatre’s 96th season. Located at 78 Winans Ave in Cranford, CDC Theatre is New Jersey’s oldest community theatre offering live theatre since 1919. Power, sex, ambition, greed... it's just another day at the office. From the authors of GUYS AND DOLLS comes one of the most delightfully irreverent musicals of all time. A satire of big business and all it holds sacred, the show follows the rise of J. Pierrepont Finch, who uses a little handbook called "How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying" 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. Shayne Long and Emily Greenbaum lead a cast of over 20 talented local performers as Finch and Rosemary (photo). The production team includes Jeffrey Fiorello as Director, Leslie Riccie as Producer, jack Bender as Musical Director and Megan Ferentinos as Choreographer. The show runs weekends from May 1 through May 16 and information and tickets can found by visiting www.cdctheatre.org or calling 908-276-7611. Funding has been made possible in part by the NJ State Council on the Arts, Dept. of State, a Partner Agency of the National Endowment for the Arts, through a grant administered by the Union County Office of Cultural & Heritage Affairs
