Genre: Musical
book and lyrics by Lynn Ahrens, score by Stephen Flaherty, Directed by Brian Swasey

"Lucky Stiff" is an impulsively wild ride from start to finish about a reclusive English shoe salesman who inherits $6,000,000 from his recently-murdered Uncle's will, on the condition that he escorts his uncle's corpse on a week-long vacation to Monte Carlo and convinces all those at the resort that his uncle's corpse is still alive and having a swell time. Should he fail to complete the task the money becomes property of the Universal Dog Home of Brooklyn.
About the Company: Astoria Performing Arts Center

ASTORIA PERFORMING ARTS CENTER (APAC), a not-for-profit organization, was founded in 2001 by Sue Scannell (Founding Executive Director, 2001-2005) and Brian J. Swasey (Founding Artistic Director, 2001-2008). APAC’s mission is to bring high quality theater to Astoria, Queens, and to support local youth and senior citizens.

On its mainstage, APAC produces revivals and premieres of plays and musicals, and APAC also develops new works through readings and workshops. Its flexible theater space changes with each production. To date, APAC has received 22 New York Innovative Theatre Award nominations and 5 wins (Children of Eden & Ragtime), as well as an Off-Off Broadway Theatre Review Award for Outstanding Production of a Musical (Is There Life After High School?). APAC was the recipient of the 2012 Caffe Cino Fellowship Award, under the leadership of Taryn Sacramone (APAC Executive Director, 2005-2013).

APAC offers free annual community programs, including a summer performance camp for children ages 8-13, an after school playwriting program for middle school students, and a performance program for Queens residents over the age of 60. These programs deepen ties with the community, and develop new audiences for theater. Diverse programming and consistent quality attracts a loyal and growing audience that reflects the diversity of Western Queens and also draws from the other boroughs and beyond.

In addition to its theater space within the Good Shepherd United Methodist Church, APAC’s offices are located within the historic Kaufman Astoria Studios.
