Following months of rehearsals, Town of Webb School drama students will take to the stage on Friday and Saturday, March 13 and 14 to present their production of, How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying.

In lead roles are Tyler Fenton as J. Pierrepont Finch and Allyson Cooper as Rosemary Pilkington who, according to musical director Valerie Gaudin and director Anne DeFilipps, are being supported by one of the finest casts that the Webb stage has ever seen.

And behind the scenes a different kind of action has been taking place to assure a quality performance.

Local contractor Jeff Evans, with the assistance of Jeff Rockhill, has once again built and designed the set.

Scenic design was created by artist Shannon Glover, and aesthetician Meggin Christiansen will style the hair of the cast.

Though costumes were rented through CNY Costumes, Inc. of Syracuse, Home and Careers teacher Diane Amos did all the measurements and needed alterations.

Returning to assist the school’s Pit Band, under the direction of Emily Herrmann, are local musician Robert Liddle, TOW School graduate Phil Leone, and Herrmann’s brother, Hugh Stuart.

The curtain goes up at 7 p.m. Tickets are $7 for adults, $6 for seniors (ages 62-plus) and $5 for students. Please come out and support these wonderful and talented kids. They certainly deserve it.
