Wakefield Repertory Theatre Presents 'Lucky Stiff'
Performances begin on April 12th at Wakefield-Lynnfield United Methodist Church.
The following was provided by Wakefield Repertory Theatre:
When Englishman Harry Witherspoon finds out he has inherited six million dollars from a casino manager uncle he’s never met, he is thrilled… but the money comes with a catch. Witherspoon must bring the embalmed body of his dead uncle on a whirlwind trip to Monte Carlo for one last fling. A representative from the Universal Dog Home of Brooklyn follows him, because if he doesn’t fulfill the will’s conditions exactly, they are next in line for the money. Both are pursued by the uncle’s girlfriend (who embezzled the six million from her husband) and her brother (who she’s set up to take the fall when her husband finds out the money is gone.)
This musical farce features wheelchairs, nuns, dogs, songs and dances that are sure to knock audiences dead in Wakefield Repertory Theatre’s production of Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty’s “Lucky Stiff”.
