About the show

Long Center & Summer Stock Austin present How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying, July 19 - August 10 in Rollins Studio Theatre.

This satire of big business and all it holds sacred, follows the rise of J. Pierrepont Finch, who uses a little handbook to climb the corporate ladder from lowly window washer to high-powered executive, tackling such familiar but potent dangers as the aggressively compliant “company man,” the office party, backstabbing coworkers, caffeine addiction and, of course, true love.

The July 31 7:30pm performance will beĀ ASL interpreted.

A very special thanks to this year’s Summer Stock Austin show underwriters, Carolyn & Marc Seriff and Lucille Lamy, for their generous support. Summer Stock Austin Fellows underwritten by the Lind Family Charitable Foundation.


Each summer, students from across the country meet to mount three productions with professionals within the industry in a one-of-a-kind experience. They work as a traditional company, each member participating in all aspects. As a part of the Long Center’s education programs, Summer Stock Austin trains well-rounded, theatre artisans and provides a rare opportunity for them to experience the next step in their careers.
