July 19 – August 4, 2024


You’ll laugh until your sides ache. Harry Witherspoon, a shy English shoe salesman, receives a telegram informing him that his uncle has left him $6 million. The only catch is: Uncle Anthony wants to go to Monte Carlo on vacation – even though he’s dead. As Harry rolls the corpse from site to site, we meet a jealous girlfriend, a timid optometrist, a dog-caregiver, a vivacious tour guide, and a French chanteuse who all take a serious interest in Uncle Anthony … and the money.

It’s the first collaboration of Lynn Aherns and Stephan Flaherty who went on to write “Ragtime,” “Anastasia,” “Suessical,” “Once on This Island” and many more hits. Comedic chaos and over 30 characters played by just a handful of actors guarantee a show you won’t forget.
