Auditions will be held at 7 p.m. Monday and Tuesday, Aug. 13-14 for the community play, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels.
Audtions will be held in the Patty Birge Room at the Neville Center, 301 E. 5th (5th and Bailey).
The cast calls for several male and female leads and an extremely busy chorus. There are no children's roles. Interested persons are asked to prepare a number to sing and/or sing a number chosen for them.
Based on the popular 1988 film, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels centers on two con men living on the French Riviera. The first man is a suave and sophisticated Lawrence Jameson, who makes a lavish living by talking rich ladies out of their money.
The other, a small-time crook named 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 unsuccessfully attempt to work together only to find that this small French town isn't big enough for the two of them. A hilarious battle of cons ensues that will keep audiences laughing, humming and guessing to the end, playhouse director Scott Carlson said.
Performance dates are Oct. 13, 14, 19, 20 and 21. For more information, contact Director Anne Schmit at (308) 534-9682.
Being a part of an NPCP production is truly a life-changing experience, Carlson said.
