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 musical 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!

Dirty Rotten Scoundrels has glitz and glamour a plenty, and features a rousing soundtrack including ‘Give Them What They Want’, ‘Great Big Stuff’ and ‘Here I Am’.

MAC Productions return to the Old Fire Station after their hugely successful shows Company (2022) and Made In Dagenham (2019).

‘I just wanted to write and say how impressed I was by your production of Company. I’m a huge fan of Stephen Sondheim’s work and you did this piece such justice. My hat is off to you all for a fantastic evening. It’s the first of your productions that I’ve seen – rest assured it will not be the last.’ – Audience member
