RTC Dirty Rotten Scoundrels—Mar. 29–Apr. 14

Journey to the French Riviera with the Resident Theatre Company for the entertaining escapades of Dirty Rotten Scoundrels. Sophisticated and suave, this hysterical comedy based on the popular 1988 film features a delightfully jazzy score by David Yazbek and was nominated for eleven Tony Awards.

Welcome back talented RTC alums, including Mark Woodard and Lukas Poost, who starred together in RTC’s hit, Spamalot. Due to some adult language, this spellbinding show is recommended for ages 10 and up. For tickets and times, visit

Uptown! Knauer Performing Arts Center, 226 N. High St., West Chester.
