Lucky Stiff

By Lynn Ahrens (book and lyrics) and Stephen Flaherty (music).

Directed by Patt Dischler & Patti Whitebird

Lucky Stiff, a musical farce, is a result of collabora-tion by the team of Lynn Ahrens (book and lyrics) and Stephen Flaherty (music). This show is based on the 1983 novel The Man Who Broke the Bank at Monte Carlo by Michael Butterworth. Harry With-erspoon, an unassuming English shoe salesman, lives an uneventful life in East Grinstead, England. His life takes a dramatic turn when he learns that his uncle Anthony, a casino manager from Atlantic City, has been killed by his blind lover. Harry learns that he stands to inherit $6,000,000 from his uncle – but only if he agrees to take his Uncle’s corpse on a trip to Monte Carlo. Otherwise, the money will all go to his uncle’s favorite charity, the Universal Dog Home of Brooklyn. In a quest to gain his uncle’s inheritance, Harry sets out to fulfill Anthon’s dying wish. However, in Monte Carlo, he meets a host of quirky characters, which are also in hot pursuit of his uncle’s money.

Auditions will be held on the following days:


This cast requires 5 men and 5 women ages 18+. No child or teen roles available. Be prepared to sing a song that showcases you range and especially your personality. No dance audition required. Depending on the number of auditioners, we may do an ad-lib scene to find the most natural personality on stage. All parts include speaking, singing, and minimal dancing. One role is for a middle to older age man. It requires him to be able to sit without noise or movement throughout most of the show, except to get up and move during a dream/nightmare sequence. The show is a fast-paced musical comedy. Some actors will be playing more than one role. Great opportunity for some one-character roles, and some talented actors who can quickly switch personalities and roles throughout the course of the show.
