Cast announced for ‘Dirty Rotten Scoundrels,’ on stage July 18
The Hill Country Community Theatre has announced the cast for its last production of the 2018-19 season, “Dirty Rotten Scoundrels,” which opens July 18.
Based on the popular 1988 film starring Steve Martin, the musical version follows the same hilarious storyline but adds a delightfully jazzy Tony Award-nominated score by David Yazbek.
The local production features Seth Smith as Lawrence Jameson, a sophisticated con artist; Clayton Brooks as Freddy Benson, a clever, aspiring con artist; Gigi Goff as Christine Colgate, a good-natured American heiress and “Soap Queen;” Jordan Jones as Andre Thibault, Lawrence’s French assistant (and chief of police); Karin Frasier as Muriel Eubanks, a wealthy and attractive American socialite; and Kim Fehlis as Jolene, the “Princess of Petroleum” from Oklahoma. The singing and dancing ensemble includes Dan Garcia, Easton Jones, Charles McLean, Nina Price, Madison Puckett, and Kylee Randall. HCCT Executive Director Mike Rademaekers will co-direct with Les Young, who last directed “State Fair.” Young also provides musical direction. Kristi Stere, who teaches at Harmony School of Creative Arts, is in charge of choreography.
“I’m thrilled to be working with this talented cast and bringing one of my favorite movies to life on the stage,” Rademaekers said. “The music for this show adds so much, and I think HCCT audiences will be excited to see all the surprises we have in store for the big finale of our thirty-third season.” “Dirty Rotten Scoundrels” runs July 18 through August 4 at the theater, 4003 FM 2147 in Cottonwood Shores. Performances are 7:30 PM on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays and 2:15 PM on Sundays. Tickets go on sale July 11 to the general public. Season subscribers may make reservations starting July 8.
