The Woodlawn Theater presents: How to Succeed in Business without Really Trying August 25 - September 17.

A satire of big business in the 1960’s, this story 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 co-workers, caffeine addiction and, of course, true love. To purchase tickets, Visit www.woodlawntheatre.org/tickets or call the box office at 210-267-8388. Box office hours Tues-Fri 10 AM-5PM. Sat 11 AM- 2 PM Showtimes: Friday & Saturday at 7:30 PM, Sunday at 3:00 PM Ticket prices: $29 for Adults, $24 for Senior/Military, $18 Children Students.
