Synopsis

Enjoy the drama and comedy of “Quartet” on stage at the Footlight Players Theatre.

This bittersweet story is set at a home for retired musicians. The the annual concert to celebrate the composer Verdi’s birthday is disrupted by the arrival of Jean, an eternal diva and the former wife of one of the residents.

The setting of this funny and poignant comedy is a home for retired opera singers. Three of the former opera-singers, who often worked together, are planning their annual concert to celebrate the composer Verdi’s birthday when everything is disrupted by the arrival of Jean, an eternal diva and the former wife of one of the residents.

Is there any chance that these four will ever sing together again? Three of the four are keen to recreate the third act quartet from Rigoletto, but Jean still acts like a diva and refuses to sing.

The show must go on … but how?

Scoundrels “is wonderfully entertaining”

 ‘Dirty Rotten Scoundrels’ is wonderfully entertaining. If you love a good musical that is a tad naughty and funny than you’ll find ‘Scoundrels’ right up your alley.
