Event Details

Ruthless! – September 15 – October 1, 2017
Book and Lyrics by Joel Paley | Music by Marvin Laird
Directed by Jay Coombes | Music Direction by Tim Braselton


Eight-year-old Tina Denmark knows she was born to play Pippi Longstocking, and she’ll do anything to win the part in her school musical.  Her mother, fellow students, and the rest of the world had better watch out because nothing will stop her quest for stardom!! Cunningly spoofing classic musicals and campy films from Gypsy to The Bad Seed, this aggressively outrageous musical garnered rave reviews during its long Off-Broadway run.


The show runs September 15 - October 1, 2017 | Fridays/Saturdays at 8 pm & Sundays at 2pm. There will be a post-show talkback with director Jay Coombes and the cast on Sunday, September 17 hosted by Dr. Chris McCoy, a local theatre professor who has studied and written about the topic of mock musicals.


A theatre industry performance has been added Monday, September 18 at 8:00 pm – $12 at the door for theatre creatives and administrators (tickets available at the door only).


Due to strong language and adult situations, Ruthless! is recommended for ages 13 and above.

“A spoof that has enough absurd plot twists and multiple identities to fill several old movies… The fun comes from the sheer brazenness!” – The New York Times
