Harris Replaces Dratch in Westport's Scramble!

News   Harris Replaces Dratch in Westport's Scramble! Rebecca Harris has replaced "Saturday Night Live" veteran Rachel Dratch in the Westport Country Playhouse production of the David Wiltse comedy Scramble!

A reason was not given for Dratch's departure from the comedy that also features the previously announced Tom Beckett (Turn of the Screw), Candy Buckley (Bernarda Alba), Colin McPhillamy (Sedition), Jennifer Mudge (Dutchman) and Matthew Rauch (Prelude to a Kiss).

Penned by Westport Country Playhouse playwright in residence David Wiltse (Sedition), Scramble! will run July 9-26 under the direction of Tracey Bridgen.

Rebecca Harris has appeared Off-Broadway in Lifegame, Enter the Night, and the film "How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days."

"When a rumor spreads that a golf magazine may be sold, the howlingly incompetent staff suspects a new hire is actually a 'hatchetman,' brought in to decide whether or not certain employees are pulling their weight," press notes for Scramble! state.

Designing the production are Jeff Cowie (set design), Ilona Somogyi (costume design), Ben Stanton (lighting design), Eric Shim (sound design) and Mark Olsen (movement coach). Tickets are available by calling (203) 227-4177 or by visiting www.westportplayhouse.org.
