A comedy premiere presented by Coleshill Operatic Society.
A Core Theatre premiere of Dirty Rotten Scoundrels - The Musical presented by talented local theatre group Coleshill Operatic Society.
Based on the popular 1988 MGM film, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels takes us to the French Riviera for high jinks and hilarity.
Sophisticated and suave, Lawrence Jameson makes his lavish living by talking rich ladies out of their money. Freddy Benson more humbly swindles women by waking their compassion with fabricated stories about his grandmother's failing health. After meeting on a train, they attempt to work together, only to find that this small French town isn't big enough for the two of them. They agree on a settlement: the first one to extract $50,000 from a young female target, heiress, Christine Colgate, wins, and the other must leave town. A hilarious battle of cons ensues that will keep you laughing, humming and guessing to the end!
