"How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying" cast performs at The Hynds Sept. 8

Things are looking up for Cheyenne’s downtown. Reconstruction, music construction, farmers’ markets, artist lofts, music and big murals. All these help boost the prospects for Wyoming’s Capital City.

Art Design & Dine is one of the many events that have brought new life to downtown. Started two years by arts dynamo Georgia Rowswell, this second-Thursday-of-the-month event has expanded from an art walk featuring a few galleries and a restaurant to an evening gala with arts, food and music. The Cheyenne Arts Council now plays a big part in the event.

The LightsOn! Project at The Hynds Building joined the mix when the building’s renovated ground floor art space opened in June. Big happenings there at the next AD&D:
Join us as we kick off September's ART DESIGN & DINE, Cheyenne's Monthly Art Tour at The Hynd's, on September 8 with a live performance by the cast of Cheyenne Little Theatre's production of How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying 
This production opens Cheyenne Little Theatre's 82nd Season of continuous entertainment for all theatre enthusiasts throughout the region!  Members of the 28-person cast will be on hand from 5:15-6 p.m. to perform musical selections from the show to give everyone a sneak preview of the show that will open on September 23. FMI:
How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying was originally presented on Broadway in 1961, starring Robert Morse as J. Pierrepont Finch. It won seven Tony Awards, the New York Drama Critic Circle Award and the 1962 Pulitzer Prize for Drama. It was successfully revived in 1995 starring Matthew Broderick and this past February a new revival with Daniel Radcliff (of Harry Potter Fame) and John Larroquette, opened on Broadway, has won Tony Award's and has been proclaimed a huge hit. With a magnificent score that moves to the rhythm of the city by Academy and Tony Award winner Frank Loesser, this exciting, new production brings one of Broadway’s funniest and best-loved musical comedies to the Cheyenne Little Theatre stage. 
Peat Bog Mysteries will play Celtic music following the musical theatre performance. Harpist Michael Riversong will provide musical accompaniment to the evening's figure-drawing classes.

A good time will be had by all.
