Dirty Rotten Scoundrels is a raunchy and hilarious musical based on the movie of the same name. Set in the French Riviera in the late 1990’s, this show has all the glitz and glamour of the rich and famous paired with good, old fashioned barroom humour.

Finding the right performers is extremely important to the story and comedy of the show. Auditioners will be evaluated on vocal quality, how their voices blend with others, acting ability, and the ability to speak in appropriate accents (for some roles). For this reason, callbacks may be needed to determine final casting for any or all roles.

Foote in the Door Productions casts based on skill set, attitude, availability and how each performer relates to the team as a whole. We are not governed by preconceived notions regarding race, sexual orientation, body shape, gender identity, physical or mental ability.

Casting is inclusive; however we cannot engage equity members. All performers are unpaid.
