Actors needed for 'Dirty Rotten Scoundrels'

Weathervane Playhouse, at 1301 Weathervane Lane in Akron, will have auditions for the musical "Dirty Rotten Scoundrels" on Feb. 9 and 10, starting at 7 p.m.

Auditions will be scheduled by appointment in 10-minute increments, and rehearsals begin April 28.

The show, directed by Jim Weaver with musical direction by John Ebner, will run Thursdays through Sundays from June 5 through 29.

The musical centers on two con men living on the French Riviera. Lawrence Jameson makes his lavish living by talking rich ladies out of their money. Freddy Benson swindles women more humbly by waking their compassion with fabricated stories about his grandmother's failing health. After meeting on a train, the two con artists attempt to work together. Trouble is, they soon find that this small French town isn't big enough for the two of them.

Those auditioning should prepare 32 bars from each of two contrasting songs (one up-tempo/one ballad), and also should prepare one comedic monologue.
