Storyline:
New York City, mid 60’s. This musical follows a young, ambitious accountant, Chuck Baxter, who works for a New York insurance company. Chuck climbs the ladder by allowing the firm's executives to use his midtown apartment for extramarital love affairs. Trouble occurs when Chuck discovers that the object of his own love, Fran Kubelik, is having rendezvous at his place with Chuck's manager, J.D. Sheldrake. (We will be presenting the 2010 revival version which includes 2 added musical numbers.)

Please be prepared to sing a selection that highlights your vocal style. Preferably from the show. An accompanist will be present. You will also be asked to read from the script. All parts are available.
