Davis Musical Theatre Company will teach audiences “How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying” April 22 through May 15.

The Frank Loesser musical tells the story of a young window-cleaner, J. Pierrepont Finch (David Holmes), who begins a meteoric rise from the mail-room to Vice President of Advertising at the World-Wide Wicket Company by following the advice of a book entitled “How to Succeed in Business” (voiced by Good Day Sacramento’s Don Geronimo). 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 Condon, “How To Succeed” features hits that became standards in the 1960s, including “I Believe in You,” “Happy to Keep His Dinner Warm,” “The Company Way,” “Been a Long Day,” “Rosemary” and “Brotherhood of Man.”

The original production, which opened on Broadway in 1960 and ran for 1,417 performances, starred Robert Morse, Bonnie Smith, Charles Nelson Reilly and Rudy Vallee. The show received seven Tony Awards, including best musical and best book, the New York Drama Critics Circle Award for best musical and a Grammy for best original cast show album, and is one of only eight musicals to win the Pulitzer Prize for Drama. A 1995 revival starred Matthew Broderick and Megan Mullally and today, as a tribute to this show’s relatable themes and engaging songs, the show is again on Broadway with its fourth incarnation, starring Daniel Radcliffe and John Larroquette.

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.
