Gettysburg Community Theatre presents RUTHLESS THE MUSICAL

Gettysburg Community Theatre presents RUTHLESS THE MUSICALGettysburg Community Theatre, the non-profit 501c3 organization located in the original Elks Lodge building at 49 York Street within the first block of Lincoln Square in historic downtown Gettysburg, will present "Ruthless! The Musical" - the show that proves when it comes to show business, the key to success is ruthlessness. The book and lyrics are written by Joel Paley with music by Marvin Laird.

"Ruthless!" is a hilarious homage to shows like "Gypsy," "The Bad Seed", "The Women", and
"All About Eve." Driven and talented third grader Tina Denmark desperately wants to be the lead role in her school play and she will do anything to get the part.

Tessa Trax plays Tina Denmark, a cute reminder of Shirley Temple and Baby June, while her real life sister Audrey Trax plays school mate Louise Lerman, and their real life mother Carrie Trax, plays Judy Denmark, an average suburban housewife with no talent whatsoever...or so she thinks. Becky Wilcox plays the theatre critic Lita Encore who sings a campy tune called "I Hate Musicals", while Emily Smallwood plays a clutching wannabe actress Eve, and Linda Fink plays the third grade teacher Miss Thorn who really needs a vacation. Chad-Alan Carr plays the Norma Desmond meets Mama Rose agent Sylvia St. Croix and asks the question, "Talent...where does it come from?" Surprises are definitely in store during this musical comedy farce that celebrated two off-broadway hit productions.

Ruthless! is directed by Shane Miller with musical direction by Nick Werner who also accompanies the show at the piano. Performances are Fridays and Saturdays at 7pm and Sundays at 2pm June 2-18, 2017. Tickets can be ordered online, via phone, or at the box office. www.GettysburgCommunityTheatre.org 717-334-2692
