Town Hall Kicks off the 2013-2014 Season with some Dirty Rotten Scoundrels!

The first production in Town Hall Arts Center’s 2013-2014 Season will be Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, book by Jeffrey Lane, music and lyrics by David Yazbek. Based on the film “Dirty Rotten Scoundrels” written by Dale Launer and Stanley Shapiro and Paul Henning. Dirty Rotten Scoundrels is directed and choreographed by Nick Sugar, Henry Award winning director of Town Hall’s 2012 production of The Who’s Tommy and 2010 Henry Award winning production of RENT. Musical direction is by Donna Kolpan Debreceni, Henry Award Winner, The Who’s Tommy.

Nick writes in his Director’s Notes, “Most of us remember the film version of Dirty Rotten Scoundrels from 1988 starring Michael Caine, Steve Martin and Glenne Hedley. Some of you may even remember a movie called Bedtime Stories from 1964 starring David Niven, Marlon Brando and Shirley Jones, which Dirty Rotten Scoundrels was based on.”

‘Two thirds rhythm and one third soul.’ That’s how Fats Waller defined the uniquely American form of popular music and dance known as ‘swing.’ SWING! celebrates this remarkable diversity to the beat of the most exhilarating songs of the period. This enthralling song-and-dance show makes it abundantly clear, swing was never a time or place — it has always been a state of mind!

Directed by Christopher Willard

Book, Music and Lyrics by Meredith Willson, Story by Meredith Willson and Franklin Lacey
An affectionate tribute to Smalltown, U.S.A. of a bygone era, Meredith Willson’s THE MUSIC MAN follows a fast-talking traveling salesman as he cons the people of River City, Iowa, into buying instruments and uniforms for a boys’ band he vows to organize – this despite the fact he doesn’t know a trombone from a treble clef. His plans to skip town with the cash are foiled when he falls for the librarian, who transforms him into a respectable citizen by curtain’s fall.
