Our Current Production - Dirty Rotten Scoundrels!

Synopsis The show has music by David Yazbeck and a book by Jeffrey Lane. Based on the film of the same name, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels tells the story of two very different con men, the debonair Laurence Jameson and the vulgar Freddy Benson. The chalk and cheese con men know they can’t both work the same resort, so they decide to make a bet. The first to make £50,000 from one of the many wealthy ladies of the French Riviera town of Beaumont Sur Mare, will get to stay, the loser has to leave town. All they have to decide is who is the target… Enter the American Soap Queen herself, Christine Colegate. As they try their different approaches to get the dough, they find that Christine isn’t as easy as they first thought and that this con is going to be harder, more painful but the most fun they’ve ever had! Nominated for 11 Tony awards this show has it all – from glitzy dance numbers to laugh out loud comedy, and an eclectic score which drives the narrative perfectly. We are looking to cast roughly 25 strong performers to join the production. In casting Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, we are particularly keen to find strong actors/character actors to take on the principal roles and bring these colourful characters to life. To find out ALL the details, please do come along to the familiarisation and meet the team and email gareth.dirtyrotten@gmail.com for an audition pack.
