UMMTA is excited to announce their next show, Lucky Stiff.

The first musical by Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty, who went on to write Once on This Island, My Favourite Year and Seussical.

Performances will be in October 2012, in Union House’s Guild Theatre.
Auditions will be towards the end of July.

Something funny’s going on…

This musical farce propels a mild-mannered English shoe clerk into a… lunatic mix of murdered Atlantic City croupier, his legally blind jilted mistress, her hen-pecked brother and several hundred (off-stage) dogs. Witherspoon will inherit six million dollars if he can successfully go on holiday with his uncle, the late departed croupier, in Monte Carlo for a week. If he doesn’t pull it off, the money goes to the Universal Dogs Home of Brooklyn – and if there is one thing in life that Harry hates, its dogs! With a tuneful score and a well-oiled plot, plus the ultimate happy ending, Lucky Stiff guarantees hilarity for one and all.
