Syracuse University’s First Year Players will hold its annual spring musical April 1-3 in the Schine Student Center’s Goldstein Auditorium. The musical, “How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying,” features 22 first-year students. The event is free, but tickets are needed; they are available through the Schine Box Office at (315) 443-4517.
“How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying” tells the story of a 1960s-era window washer who, while working his way up through the ranks of his company, falls in love with his secretary and learns a thing or two about the business world. The original musical, by Frank Loesser, was a Broadway hit and won the Pulitzer Prize in 1962.
First Year Players was founded in 1992 with the goal of providing first year students the opportunity to showcase their singing, dancing and acting talents. “How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying” is the group’s 12th musical.
