Dirty Rotten Scoundrels – Mac-Haydn Theatre

Musical theatre has a special magic. Musicals sweep you along as they tell stories through songs and dance. Emotions are intensified as the audience listens and watches. The Mac-Haydn Theatre is devoted to presenting musicals of all  kinds. Every two weeks they offer a different treat –  new and old favorites.

 

Located in Chatham, New York, the Mac-Haydn presents musicals in the round. The audience surrounds the  small stage which seems huge as the young dancers fill it with motion and sound. Each seat is a good one  The aisles, the theatre walls, are all part of the action. Bob and I were thrilled to  to talk to two of the principal players in Dirty Rotten Scoundrels  on opening night, Gabe Belyeu and Madison Stratton.  They were delightful and offered insight into Dirty Rotten Scoundrels and into musical theatre and what the experience is for the actors. A half hour later when we saw them, we barely recognized them, so fully had they  become their characters. Dirty Rotten Scoundrels runs until June 18. There are matinees as well as evening performances. Check out the other musicals that are coming up as well by clicking on the theatre’s website after listening to the actors.
