The Georgetown Palace Theatre presents the Central Texas debut of Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, an uproariously funny musical for mature audiences, live on the Springer Memorial Stage beginning Friday, April 1 for a five-weekend run through May 1.
Based on the popular 1988 MGM film starring Michael Caine and Steve Martin, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels centers on two con men living on the French Riviera. After meeting on a train, they attempt to work together only to find that this small French town isn’t big enough for both of them. They agree on a bet that will determine who goes and who stays. What follows is a series of hilarious schemes, masquerades and double-crosses that will keep you guessing until the end.The Palace’s production of Dirty Rotten Scoundrels features five recent winners of Austin’s coveted B. Iden Payne Awards -- actors Andrew Cannata, Michelle Cheney and Joe Penrod, and choreographers Danny Herman and Rocker Verastique -- as well as previous B. Iden Payne nominee Sara Burke. Broadway veterans Herman and Verastique are internationally recognized directors, choreographers, actors and instructors. The cast also features expert stage, TV and film actor Rick Felkins; Palace favorite Patty Rowell of Austin; and a gifted Ensemble of singers and dancers.
