At New World, a vintage musical

How To Succeed The musical theater program at Miami's New World School of the Arts kicks off December with a production of How To Succeed in Business Without Really Trying, Frank Loesser's 1961 Pulitzer Prize-winning musical. 

Forty New World high school students (including, left to right in photo, Sarah Crane, Alexis Scheer, Lauren Csete and Brenda J. Lucas) appear in this sassy, funny, tuneful take on the early-'60s corporate world.  James Randolph directs, and both high school and college music division students will play in the show's orchestra.

Performances are at 7:30 p.m. Friday-Saturday, 2 p.m. Sunday through Dec. 13.  Tickets are $12 ($5 for students and seniors). The show goes on in the Louise O. Gerrits Theatre, 25 NE Second St., Miami.  Call 305-237-3541 or visit the New World web site for information.
