TALENT’ – something we’re born with….or something worth killing for!!

Get ready for “Ruthless the Musical,” a laugh-out-loud, high-energy show that’s as campy as it is entertaining! Join us as we follow 8-year-old Tina Denmark’s hilarious journey to stardom, where she’ll stop at nothing to take centre stage. With a catchy score by Marvin Laird and witty lyrics by Joel Paley, this production is a rollicking spoof of classic shows like “Gypsy,” “Mame,” and the iconic thriller “The Bad Seed.” It’s a wild, sidesplitting take on these beloved classics that will have you in stitches.
Dolly Diamond, is stepping into the iconic role of Sylvia St. Croix, and she’s determined to turn the theatre upside down. With a sense of humor sharper than a stiletto heel, Dolly declares, “I’ve waited years to play this role on stage, I’ve been playing it off stage all my life.” Melbourne, get ready for a masterclass in sass, camp, and uproarious hilarity!
This rendition is more exhilarating than ever, with critics hailing it as “Hilarious… It is beyond praise!” (New York Daily News)“Wild amusement.” (New York Post)andMalicious, delicious and a total joy!” (New York Observer).
