Be aware! Dirty Rotten Scoundrels are about to take over Beccles Public Hall. No need to panic though, because it’s Waveney Light Opera Group with their production of the award winning musical.

This show is based on the 1988 film, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels which starred Michael Caine and Steve Martin. It has a catchy score by David Yasbeck, (who composed the musical score for the Full Monty) and was nominated for 10 Tony Awards, including best musical.

The show has the flavour of musical comedies of a past era, with plenty of humour, song and dance.

The plot is set on the French Riviera and follows two rivalling scam artists, Lawrence Jamieson and Freddy Benson. Lawrence is an established experienced resident scammer in the resort, who feels a little threatened when the inexperienced newcomer, Freddy arrives in town. However, there is only room in town for one con man.

Come and support Waveney Light Opera Group and their Dirty Rotten Scoundrels at Beccles Public Hall & Theatre to find out who comes out on top, Lawrence or Freddy… or neither!
