The Wellington High School Performing Arts Department is presenting the hit off-Broadway musical Lucky Stiff through Saturday, April 12 at the school’s theater.
From the creative team of Lynn Aherns and Stephen Flaherty, and 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 dollars worth of 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 million. If not, the money goes to the Universal Dog Home of Brooklyn, or perhaps his uncle’s gun-toting ex.
Tickets are available for the show and cost $12 for adults and $8 for students. For more information, or to purchase tickets, visit www.whsdramaclub.com.
