"Give Them What They Want!" sing cast members of "Dirty Rotten Scoundrels," as this Tony-nominated musical com- edy opens to a lively casino scene amidst swindles galore. And, as- suming a rollicking, fun evening of theatre is what audiences members want, they are sure to find it when the show opens at 7 p.m., Friday, May 5, at Clear Space Theatre in Rehoboth Beach. An evening of trickery and reversals is assured as Yazbek and Lane's show brings together competing con men Lawrence (David War- ick) and Freddy (Steven Dow), the women they target and the double-crossing, hilarious means they all are willing to employ to achieve their nefarious ends. Making her Clear Space di- rectorial debut with this show, Shannon Parks says, "It's been some time since I've had the op- portunity to direct a big, splashy musical - and I'm loving it! 'Dirty Rotten Scoundrels' is just such a blast! It offers a compelling juxtaposition of the elegant and the crass, very cleverly woven together in an uproariously fun- ny script with gorgeous music. This show is a joy to direct, and I know the audience is go- ing to love the wild ride we take them on!" Dow says, " Fre d dy i s loud, obnox- ious and crude - yet funny and lovable at the same time! Freddy loves the game that he and Lawrence play - a battle of wits to see who can be the dirtiest rotten scoundrel. I love this role - how much more fun could someone pos- sibly have?" H e a d d s , "This is the second Yazbek-scored produc- tion I've been in at Clear Space - the other was 'The Full Monty,' where I also shared the stage with David Warick. Yazbek's mu- sic is great, and the opportunity to work with David again is even better! Of all the shows Clear Space is producing this year, this one - and the role of Freddy - was at the top of my wish list." Reflecting on her debut as a di- rector at Clear Space, Parks says, "I have the privilege of working with a fabulously talented cast and a fantastic support system in musical direction, choreography and production design. I feel so fortunate to have found this artis- tic home here at the beach! Clear FORT MILES MUSEUM CAPE HENLOPEN STATE PARK Our biggest event of the year!

Years ago, the Cattertons volunteered to bring their artwork to one of the guild's Free Writes, allowing writers to write spontaneously about paintings, using the works as prompts. This evolved into the guild's monthly art-inspired Free Writes at the Rehoboth Art League, which in turn led to Art in the AM, an event that will cel- ebrate its one-year anniversary this June. "We want this to be casual and fun, igniting conversations and ideas," says Fischer. "Writ- ing and painting are often such solitary activities. Even the read- ing of literature in public or the viewing of art can seem such serious and solemn endeavors. That's not what this is." For more information, go to www.
