Loot is a madcap and occasionally outrageous romp that centers around a bank robbery and bank robbers’ increasingly desperate attempts to hide their ill-gotten gains, including inside a casket. When first produced in London in the mid-60’s, it was a tremendous box office hit. Subsequent productions throughout the years have been just as successful. The life and career of playwright Joe Orton – who was murdered in his mid-30’s -- was the subject of the movie Prick Up Your Ears, which starred Gary Oldman and Alfred Molina.
Director Gary Puckett is also looking for persons who would be interested in working backstage or assisting with the technical aspects of the production, including set building, costumes, props, etc.
