Dirty Rotten Scoundrels
Three months from today we open a little show in Cookstown titled Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, and we're still two men short of a full cast. Ideally these two men would sing like Hugh Jackman, dance like Gene Kelly, and play the accordion like Myron Floren, but seeing as there are a couple of other musical skits going on out there this fall that are utilizing all the man talent, we would be really happy if these two men could carry a tune and not bump into the furniture whilst moving it.
Okay... here's the pitch. We need two men, preferably born in the 70s, 80s or early 90s (though we won't say no to men born in the late 90s, late 50s or the even numbered years of the 1960s) who sing and can attend the majority of rehearsals over the next three months.
Scott Hurst is the Director (don't let that put you off) and the Music Directors are Brenda McDooling Duce and Emily Morrison. Rehearsals start on Monday, August 11, and continue Monday and Thursday for three weeks. Then we add Sunday afternoon rehearsals on August 31 and Sunday evening rehearsals a few weeks into September. The show runs October 30 - November 16 (Thu - Sat @ 8, Sun @ 2).
There may be opportunities for car-pooling.
There will not be snow until December.
It is a guaranteed good time.
Kevin Scharf is in it.
There may be baked goods.
Who could ask for anything more!?
