Auditions scheduled for Weatherford College musical production

Event Date:

From Linda Bagwell
Director, Communications & Public Relations
Weatherford College

Nancy McVean, Weatherford College’s long-time drama instructor and director, and Rob Laney, music director, are looking for men and women who can sing and act and are interested in appearing in the College’s fall production of How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying.

“The leads, of course, are mostly men, but the women have terrific roles, as well,” McVean said.

How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying is a musical with music and lyrics by Frank Loesser and book by Abe Burrows, Jack Weinstock and Willie Gilbert. It opened on Broadway in 1961, based on Shepherd Mead’s 1952 book of the same name. It was made into a successful movie in 1967.
