NSCP presents Lucky Stiff

Lucky Stiff

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

Performances are at the Little Theater in Shenedehowa High School East
