PIT BAND AUDITIONS
DIRTY ROTTEN SCOUNDRELS
Please audition if you are able to play from a Broadway Score or have Jazz Training at the High School Level
The show is for ages 14-18 and we want High School Volunteers to be in the Pit.
Based on the popular 1988 MGM film with Michael Caine and Steve Martin – Dirty Rotten Scoundrels is the story of 2 con men – cool and sophisticated Lawrence who lives in Beumont Sur Mer, France and not so cool and sophisticated Freddy who has just arrived in Beaumont Sur Mer. Both men make a living by swindling women out of their money. 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 mischief and mayhem ensues along with a fantastic jazzy-pop score by David Yazbek (Tootsie, The Band’s Visist). Dirty Rotten Scoundrels was nominated for a staggering eleven Tony Awards – and notably a Tony win for St. Louis’ own Norbert Leo Butz as Freddy.
The band will be needed at the Dress Rehearsals the last couple days of Tech week leading up to June 19th and the band will also have several scheduled rehearsals without the cast that will be scheduled according to everyone’s schedule.
The show will perform three times at the Gaslight theatre, June 19th-21st.
