The hero is a window washer, J. Pierrepont Finch. After Finch happens upon a book entitled "How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying," he decides to begin his rise up the corporate ladder. Following the instructions of the book, Finch lands a job in the mailroom at the World Wide Wicket Company. With the help of his handy book, Finch quickly gains promotions and outsmarts his rival, Frump - who also happens to be the boss's nephew. Finch also gains the love of Rosemary, a secretary at the company. All this combines into a delightful song-and-dance spoof on moneymaking and romance in the labyrinth web of a Corporate headquarters. The production is under the direction of Donna Polichetti. Joel Flowers is the musical director and David Mossey is the choreographer. The stage manager is Kathy Fine. Creative Theatre-Muddy Water Players, Inc. is an incorporated, non-profit organization that has been performing in the mid-Hudson since 1978.
