The cast and crew of our May season "How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying" welcome you to join them for an open rehearsal experience.
Come into the space and watch as the cast go through their paces with choreography and scene work, plus you will have the opportunity to join in the experience as the production team put YOU into the scenes right there with the cast (*while we encourage you to have a go, we also understand if you’d rather just watch).
Experience a real musical theatre rehearsal, get a chance to be among the first to see the re-opened venue, and think about if you might like to volunteer with us in the future! 

We welcome volunteers on stage, behind the stage, in front of house and in any way you can think of! Just let us know on the day or after the event how you’d like to be involved. If you would like, you will be able to become a member of the Roleystone Theatre right there and then, and/or volunteer.
Everyone welcome. Roleystone Theatre Inc. is an inclusive and welcoming community group for people of all ages.
Bookings required (free) for attendance numbers and for catering (a light afternoon tea will be provided).

Show synopsis (OR 'why you'll want to be sure to come and see it!'):
'Big business means big laughs in this delightfully clever lampoon of life on the corporate ladder.'
A satire of big business and all it holds sacred, 'How to Succeed in Business without Really Trying' follows the rise of J. Pierrepont Finch, who uses a little handbook called How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying 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.
A tune-filled comic gem that took Broadway by storm, winning both the Tony Award for Best Musical and a Pulitzer Prize, 'How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying' boasts an exhilarating score by Frank Loesser, including "I Believe in You," "Brotherhood of Man" and "The Company Way."
An irreverent and tuneful romp, jam-packed with sly, swift and sharp jabs to the funny bone.
Show is best suited to audience members 16+
Music and Lyrics by FRANK LOESSER
Based upon the book by SHEPHERD MEAD
