Petts Wood Operatic Society are delighted to present our next production Dirty Rotten Scoundrels a musical comedy based on the 1988 MGM film of the same name.

From Thursday 30th March until Saturday 1st April at The Rose Theatre, Rose Bruford College, Sidcup.

Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, based on the popular 1988 MGM film, takes us to the French Riviera for high jinks and hilarity. Sophisticated, suave with a good dash of mischief, this hysterical comedy features a delightfully jazzy score by David Yazbek (The Full Monty) and was nominated for a staggering eleven Tony Awards.

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 audiences laughing, humming and guessing to the end!

Performances each evening will commence at 7:30pm with a Saturday matinee at 2:30pm.

Me and my wife came from Croydon to see this last night and absolutely loved it. Tremendous fun great music and songs and complete escapism on yet another rainy, dreary Thursday evening.
We had seats second from the front which were so comfortable which added to a fantastic evening.

Similar to the Barn theatre in Oxted , we would rather go to these these small productions all day long, then “take in”a show and be “fleeced” in London.

Once again thank you to the whole cast …….you gave us something special. 

(PS Wish I had. bought a programme now)
