The Temple College Fine Arts Department presents “How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying” at 7:30 p.m. March 1-2 at the Mary Alice Marshall Performing Arts Center.

This production is a satire of big business and all that it holds sacred. The story follows the rise of JP 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 becoming a high-powered executive. He tackles familiar – but potent – dangers such as the aggressively, compliant “company man,” the office party, backstabbing coworkers, caffeine addiction and of course, true love.

Tickets are $10 for adults. Students are free with a school ID. Advanced tickets are encouraged and can be purchased at
