Summer Stock Austin presents Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, August 1 – 11 in Rollins Studio Theatre.
Based on the popular 1988 film starring Steve Martin and Michael Caine, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels tells the story of Lawrence Jameson and Freddy Benson, two con men who decide to work together after a chance meeting on a train. They attempt to swindle a small town in the French Riviera, but soon discover that only one can succeed. They agree that the first of them to swindle $50,000 from the young heiress, Christine Colgate, can remain in town. The other must leave.
Nominated for 10 Tony Awards, including Best Musical, Best Book and Best Score, this show is filled with hijinks and hilarity that will keep the audience guessing until the very end.

About Summer Stock Austin
Now entering its 14th season, there isn’t any other program in the country quite like Austin’s own SUMMER STOCK AUSTIN. From performing to designing and building sets, these high school and college students from across the country learn about every part of a professional theatre company–all the while working side-by-side with local and national theatre professionals. High school students learn from college students who learn from professionals. Performers and technicians are picked based on their demonstrated talent, promise and character. The “company” rehearses for three weeks to mount three fully produced musicals in the Rollins Theatre at the Long Center. The program is supported by ticket sales and through the generous donations of arts supporters.
