How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying

Wow, wow, wow! What a fabulous production with a superb cast. How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying delivers a brilliant night of entertainment that is bursting with energy. From start to finish the show is a visual and musical delight. I was mesmerised with the vibrant musical numbers, the non-stop action, the stunning array of costumes, and props that were whizzed on and off the stage with perfect precision.

How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying tells the story of ambitious window washer, J.Pierrepont Finch who with the help of his trusty book on how to succeed in business without really trying, decides to toss in the cleaning rags and work his way inside the building he has been cleaning and climb right to the top of the corporate ladder, in record time. There are some hilarious antics as the company’s president J.B Biggley’s incompetent nephew, Bud Frump, attempts to compete with Finch in the race to the top, with a little help from his pushy mother.

Ethan Liboiron, who played J.Pierrepont Finch, gave a flawless performance, as did his love interest, Cassidy Mackie, who played Rosemary Pilkington. Ethan maintained a high level of energy throughout the show and certainly succeeded in winning the hearts of the audience with his endearing performance. Cassidy has a magical presence on stage, which is exuberated when she sings. She is a delight to watch and a true star on stage.

"I secured Jacquelin’s services to edit my book. The book was transformed under her guidance and I was grateful for the clear-sighted direction which she imparted with logical and also creative reasoning. The publisher was impressed with her edit and I know they have a better product as a result of her input."
