Show Synopsis:

Lucky Stiff is an offbeat, hilarious musical murder mystery farce complete with mistaken identities, six million bucks in diamonds, and a corpse in a wheelchair. Forced to take the embalmed body of his recently murdered uncle on a vacation to Monte Carlo, Harry Witherspoon stands to inherit $6,000,000. If not, the money goes to the Universal Dog Home of Brooklyn, or else his uncle’s gun-toting ex!



10 roles open ~ 6 men, 4 women




HARRY WITHERSPOON.  Male, early 30s. A shy, sweet-natured and insecure young Englishman, working as an underpaid shoe salesman in a dreary London suburb.  Lonely, and beset by dogs and prying neighbors in his boardinghouse, Harry knows that life is passing him by, but feels incapable of making any changes or taking any chances.


ANNABEL GLICK. Female, early 30s. A representative of the Universal Dog Home of Brooklyn.  Annabel is a young woman with a natural bent for causes.  She takes life very seriously, and denies herself any small pleasures, for fear that if she waits for happiness to knock, it won’t. Instead, she dedicates herself to good works.  Annabel is the type who wears protest buttons and carries a bag full of useful things like tire gauges and granola bars.


RITA LA PORTA.  Female, early 40s. A handsome, hard-edged woman with an extremely volatile nature and a severe case of nearsightedness.  Rita is passionate, impulsive, jealous, manipulative, and very insecure about her looks.  She is also putty in the hands of the man she adores. Things often get out of control when Rita is present.  She is a chain smoker.


VINCENT (VINNIE) DI RUZZIO.  Male, early 40s. Rita La Porta’s brother.  An optometrist.  A nervous and conservative man, a pillar of the community and a person who would never do anything out of the ordinary, risky or controversial. Vinnie is allergic to smoke.


LUIGI GAUDI. Male, early 50s. A boisterous and gregarious Italian.  Luigi is a pivotal character, although his part is relatively small.  He wears a beard, and perhaps an eye patch.


ENSEMBLE PLAYERS.  2 men, 2 women. These performers double a variety of parts, including: an English landlady and her boarders, an English solicitor, travelers on a train, a French waiter, a bellhop, tourists, gamblers, an emcee, a French nightclub entertainer and others.


And, one actor who plays THE DEAD BODY OF ANTHONY HENDON.
