Comedy to open in-person performances at Drama Group

The Drama Group will open its 90th season with the musical comedy “How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying,” its first in-person production since shutting down due to the COVID pandemic.

The hilarious satire on big business, will be presented at the Drama Group’s Milord Theatre, 330 202nd St. in Chicago Heights, at 7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday, Oct. 1 and 2, and Thursday, Friday and Saturday, Oct. 7, 8 and 9. Afternoon performances at 2 p.m. are Oct. 3 and 10.

Audience members will be required to show proof of vaccination or negative COVID-19 PCR test results within 72 hours of the performance.

Andy Leahy is directing this production set around a young window washer who, with the aid of a handbook, moves up the corporate ladder with a mixture of innocence and smarts. It’s just another day at the office in this heart-warming musical romp.

The cast includes Will Knox of Flossmoor. Assisting Leahy are Megan Hoyt of Flossmoor doing social media and Kelly Campos of Homewood doing marketing.

The Drama Group is using BookTix Ticketing and Livestreaming as its ticket service. All tickets are available by going to The Drama Group BookTix website dg.booktix.com where patrons will be directed to set up an account with “The Drama Group-BookTix Box Office.”
