“Dirty Rotten Scoundrels”
Comes to MCCC’s Kelsey Theatre
West Windsor, N.J. – Conmen Lawrence Jameson and Freddy Benson are up to raucous trickery at Mercer County Community College Kelsey Theatre in May. Enter their world on the French Riviera as the duo unleashes their antics in the much acclaimed Broadway musical “Dirty Rotten Scoundrels” Fridays, May 13 and 20 at 7:30 p.m.; Saturdays May 14 and 21 at 7:30 p.m. and Sundays, May 15 and 22 at 2 p.m. The Kelsey Theatre is located on the college’s West Windsor campus at 1200 Old Trenton Road. A reception with the cast and crew follows the opening performance on May 13.
A chance meeting on a train throws the two con artists into each other’s path. Vastly different, the suave and sophisticated Jameson and small-time crook Benson scheme to get as much money as possible from unsuspecting ladies. Deciding that the town is not big enough for them both, they set up a challenge: see who can be the first to swindle $50,000 from a young heiress. The winner stays, and the loser leaves town. Come join in on their twisted journey with loads of laughs along the way.
