For the Antigo Times
World Wide Wicket Company is the pinnacle of corporate achievement, and J. Pierrepont Finch is determined to become its head. There’s just one problem: he’s on the wrong side of the windows. A guiding book assures him, however, that this window-washer will see his way to becoming the Chairman of the Board, or it isn’t How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying!
Corporate success is determined not by what you know, but by who you know. Or at least, that’s what Bud Frump believes… until he meets J. Pierrepont Finch. Finch, you see, has an inside advantage of his own… a book titled How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying! Frump is the nephew of Mr. J.B. Biggley, the president of World Wide Wicket Company. Finch is the company’s window-washer. Frump is determined to advance at any cost. Finch is also determined to succeed as well! The two seem to be matched evenly enough, but when Frump sticks Finch with a disaster, can even his inside guide save his career? Join the Antigo High School’s Drama Club as we bring to you the glitz, glamour, and romance of the 1960’s corporate world in How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying!
