The cast of Anderson Theatre’s LUCKY STIFF are all hoping to change their lives for the better. Shown here are senior Lee Trout as Uncle Tony, junior Sam Chandler as Luigi Gaudi, junior Olivia Weddle as Dominique du Monaco, senior Josh Berning as Harry Witherspoon, senior Ellie Elmore as Annabel Glick, senior Sophie Teague as Rita La Porta, and senior Nathan Knarr as Vincent Di Ruzzo.

Writer Lynn Ahrens and composer Stephen Flaherty, the Tony-Award winning team behind Ragtime and Seussical, began their collaboration with Lucky Stiff, a musical murder mystery farce of mistaken identities, millions in diamonds, and a wheelchair-bound corpse that will leave you dying of laughter.

AT_Lucky Stiff logoHarry Witherspoon is an unassuming English shoe salesman who is forced to take the embalmed body of his dead uncle on a vacation to Monte Carlo, all to inherit six million dollars. If he fails, the money goes to the Universal Dog Home of Brooklyn—a result dearly hoped for by Annabel Glick, who is watching him like a hawk! Throw in a jilted mistress, her hapless brother, and a mysterious Italian, and you have an old-fashioned, madcap night of pure fun. Don’t miss Lucky Stiff!
