This amateur production is presented by arrangement with JOSEF WEINBERGER LIMITED on behalf of MUSIC THEATRE INTERNATIONAL of NEW YORK.
Join our talented final year students at London’s Stratford Circus for this entertaining, offbeat and very funny murder mystery farce, based on the novel by Michael Butterworth, The Man Who Broke The Bank At Monte Carlo.
The story revolves around an unassuming English shoe salesman who is forced to take the embalmed body of his recently-murdered Atlantic City uncle on a vacation to Monte Carlo. Should he succeed in passing Uncle off as alive, Harry Witherspoon stands to inherit $6,000,000. If not, the money goes to the Universal Dog Home of Brooklyn, or else to the gun-toting wife of the casino owner!
A classic musical comedy complete with slamming doors, mistaken identities, six million bucks in diamonds, and a corpse in a wheelchair, this award winning musical promises an entertaining evening full of laughs, as our final year students present their graduate show.
