Long Eaton team stage musical comedy

Join Long Eaton Operatic Society this October as they whisk you off to the French Riviera for con-artist comedy, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels.

Based on the popular 1988 film starring Michael Caine and Steve Martin, the show features a delightfully jazzy score by David Yazbek (The Full Monty) and was nominated for a staggering eleven Tony Awards.

The story brings together debonair and sophisticated Lawrence Jameson (Dave O’Neal), who makes a lavish living talking rich ladies out of their money, and crass get-rich-quick schemer Freddy Benson (Jack Draper) who more humbly swindles women by fabricating stories about his grandmother’s failing health.

After meeting on the French Riviera, they attempt to work together, but soon decide town isn’t big enough for the both of them. A hilarious battle of cons ensues that will keep audiences laughing and guessing to the end.

It is on at Trent College, Long Eaton, October 24-28, at 7.30pm plus Saturday matinee 2.30pm. Box Office 01332 874352 or buy online at http://www.longeatonoperatic.com
