The winner of seven Tonys and the Pulitzer Prize in 1961, “How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying” comes to the Davis Musical Theatre Company stage April 22 through May 15. Following the advice of a book titled, “How to Succeed in Business” (voiced by “Good Day Sacramento’s” Don Geronimo), a young window cleaner, J. Pierrepont Finch (David Holmes), begins a meteoric rise from the mail room to vice president of advertising at the World-Wide Wicket Company.

However, Finch’s dubious and uncompromising business ambition endangers not only his career but also a budding romance with secretary Rosemary Pilkington (Kay Hight).

Directed and choreographed by Rand Martin, with musical direction by Steve Isaacson and Chris Congdon, “How To Succeed…” features hits that became standards in the 1960s, including, “I Believe in You,” “Happy to Keep His Dinner Warm” and “The Company Way.”

Performances will be at 8:15 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays and 2:15 p.m. Sundays at the DMTC Performing Arts Center, 607 Peña Drive in Davis. Tickets are $18 general, $16 for students and seniors and $14 per person for groups of 10 or more. Purchase tickets at http://www.dmtc.org or (530) 756-3682.
