"Lucky Stiff" set to open soon at Andrew College

CUTHBERT, GA (WALB) -

 The curtain opens on Andrew College's production of "Lucky Stiff" on Thursday, March 27, at 7 p.m.

An all-Andrew cast and crew of more than 20 students, faculty and administrators—including Andrew President David Seyle—will perform the musical adaptation of Michael Butterworth's 1983 novel "The Man Who Broke the Bank at Monte Carlo."

"Lucky Stiff is a fun ride, and not just for the dead guy in the wheelchair," said Nate Gross, director of the theatre program at Andrew College. "Honestly, this show has the best combination of humor and great music that I have seen in a musical."

"Lucky Stiff" revolves around the journey of Harry Witherspoon, an unassuming English shoe salesman who must transport his recently-murdered uncle to Monte Carlo to collect an inheritance. Should he successfully pass off the embalmed body as alive, Witherspoon will collect $6 million from his uncle's estate. This zany musical comedy was popular in the late 1980s, winning a Richard Rogers Award in 1988.

Under the stage management of Rebecca Ergle, a freshman from Cordele, the opening show begins at 7 p.m. on Friday, March 27. Subsequent performances on March 28 and 29 will also begin at 7 p.m., and a 2 p.m. matinee will be performed on Sunday, March 30. All performances will be held in the Liddie Murphy Center for the Communication Arts at Andrew College.

Gross noted the cast includes a collection of freshmen and sophomores, including Ben McClary, Sarah Grey, Kristian Ward, James Larro, Jerami Sanders, Breanna Harkins, Brittany Lanaux, Sarah Tyson and Tiffany Ford.

Tickets are available online at www.showtix4u.com or by calling Nate Gross, director of the theatre program, at (229) 732-5968.

Tickets will also be available at the door beginning one hour before showtime. Admission is $10 for adults and $7 for Andrew employees and non-Andrew students.

Founded in 1854, Andrew College is a small, private, two-year college related to The United Methodist Church and accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC).

Its mission is to provide an academically challenging liberal arts curriculum within a nurturing community. To discover more about Andrew, visit www.andrewcollege.edu .
