Auditions Announced for DIRTY ROTTEN SCOUNDRELS at Greater Hamilton Civic Theatre

Music and Lyrics by David Yazbek and Book by Jeffrey Lane

Directed by Rhonda Lucas
Produced by Brett Sandlin
Sponsored by Mark & Teresa Durbin

DIRTY ROTTEN SCOUNDRELS, based on the popular 1988 film of the same name, takes us to the French Riviera for high jinks and hilarity. Lawrence Jameson and Freddy Benson are two con men attempting to con women in the same small French town, but the town isn’t big enough for the two of them. As a result, they devise a plan; the first one to extract $50,000 from a young female target wins and the other must leave. A hilarious battle of cons ensues that will keep audiences laughing, humming and guessing to the end.


  • Lawrence Jameson – Elegant and pompous con man, who has been doing the con for a long time and is looking to get excited about it again. Must be able to do a ridiculous German accent.
  • Freddy Benson – Unsophisticated and cocky con man, who is used to running smaller cons but dreams of bigger payoffs. Physical comedy a must.
  • Christine Colgate – Innocent and enchanting young woman from Ohio. She gets caught up in the battle between Lawrence and Freddy and charms them in the process.
  • Muriel Eubanks – A sophisticated, wealthy woman who gets swept up by Lawrence’s act and later falls in love with Andre’.
  • Inspector Andre Thibault – Longtime friend of Lawrence. He helps Lawrence in his con activities. French accent a must.
  • Jolene Oakes – A wealthy woman from Oklahoma. She’s loud and southern.
    Approximately 20 ensemble parts; lots of partner dancing
