Azusa, Calif. The Azusa Pacific University Theater continues its 2011–12 season with the musical production How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying, March 8—10, March 15—17, and March 22—24, 2012, at 7:30 p.m., with four matinee showings on March 11, 18, 24, and 25 at 2 p.m. All performances take place at the APU Theater, located in the Mary Hill Center, on APU’s West Campus, at 701 E. Foothill Blvd. in Azusa.

A satire of big business and all it holds sacred, How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying follows the rise of J. Pierrepont Finch, who uses a little handbook to climb the corporate ladder. Finch moves from lowly window washer to high-powered executive, tackling familiar themes and people like the aggressively compliant “company man,” the boss’ whiny nephew, the office party, backstabbing co-workers, caffeine addiction, and true love.

APU’s How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying is directed by Amick Byram, a two-time Grammy nominee, a successful solo recording artist, and the singing voice of Moses in Dreamwork’s animated feature The Prince of Egypt.
