The Dirty Rotten Scoundrels are in town!

The cast of hit musical Dirty Rotten Scoundrels have arrived in Cardiff to bring mischief and hilarity to the Wales Millennium Centre stage.

The production stars Cardiff’s very own Noel Sullivan as Freddy alongside Michael Praed as Lawrence, Carley Stenson as Christine and guest stars Mark Benton as Andre.

Prepare to be transported to the luxurious lap of the French Riviera where the decadent world of sophisticated conman Lawrence Jameson is set to come crashing down with the arrival of larger-than-life Freddy Benson – a conman of an entirely different order.

Soon realising the town ain’t big enough for the both of them, the two find themselves going head to head in the con of their lives, pulling out all of the stops in a bid for the affections of millionaire soap heiress Christine Colgate. Little do they know what they’ve let themselves in for.

The critically acclaimed Best New Musical of 2014 ran for a year to rave reviews, packed houses and was also nominated for the Olivier Award for Best Choreography. The musical is based on the legendary 1988 film Dirty Rotten Scoundrels starring Michael Caine and Steve Martin.

Dirty Rotten Scoundrels is directed and choreographed by the Tony Award winning Jerry Mitchell with music and lyrics by Drama Desk Award winner David Yazbek and book by the Golden Globe and Emmy-Award winning Jeffrey Lane.

The production is presented by the Ambassador Theatre Group and Jerry Mitchell productions.

Dirty Rotten Scoundrels is at the Wales Millennium Centre until Saturday 22 August. Tickets range from £19-£42. Premium seats are available. For more information and to book tickets visit www.wmc.org.uk or call 029 2063 6464.
