The next mainstage production for this season will be Dirty Rotten Scoundrels (a musical) which opens April 20 and runs through Saturday, May 12. This show is directed by Dan Posluns, music direction by Mark Press and produced by Katie Soule and Nikki Fey-Burgett, choreographed by Elizabeth Posluns with stage management by Sean McKay.

Dirty Rotten Scoundrels Synopsis: Lawrence makes his lavish living by talking rich ladies out of their money. Freddy more humbly swindles women by waking their compassion with fabricated stories about his grandmother’s failing health. After meeting, they attempt to work together, only to find that this small French town isn’t big enough for the two of them. A hilarious battle ensues that will keep audiences laughing, and humming to the end!

This show is part of our mainstage series.
