The murder mystery musical Lucky Stiff will be performed at Sturgeon Bay High School from Feb. 4 – 6.
Based on the novel The Man Who Broke The Bank At Monte Carlo by Michael Butterworth, Lucky Stiff is an offbeat, hilarious murder mystery farce complete with mistaken identities, six million bucks in diamonds, and a corpse in a wheelchair. In this musical, Harry Witherspoon is an unassuming English shoe salesman who is forced to take the embalmed body of his Uncle Tony on a vacation to Monte Carlo. If he succeeds in passing his uncle off as alive, he will inherit six million dollars. If he fails, the money goes to the Universal Dog Home of Brooklyn, or his uncle’s gun-toting ex-girlfriend.
The cast includes: Levi Brunette, Paige Sullivan, Rachel Seizer, Kekoa Bicoy, John Amelinckx, Moriah Grahl, Molly Bordeau, Paige Frystak, Taylor Goddard, Abby Jorgensen, Nathan Leroy, Izaak Polecheck, Maddy Schopf, Mikayla Spohn and Isabel Vreeke.
Lucky Stiff is produced by Justin Ranek with music direction by Bill Bauernfeind, direction by Moriah Grahl, and choreography/assistant direction by Molly Boudreau. Behind the scenes are Ria Buesing, Rose Coisman and Darla Dahl on costumes, Renée Kujawski and Brian Pahl on design and construction.
Performances will be Feb. 4, 5 and 6 at 7 pm, with a 2 pm matinee on Feb. 6. Tickets are $10 at the door. For more information, call Bill Bauernfeind (920.743.9799) or Justin Ranek (920.746.5753).
