Winner of the 1993 Outer Critics Circle award and Drama Desk Award, this musical comedy hit is celebrating its 30th anniversary this year! The Little Theater of Tuscarawas County is one of a small number of theatres in the country that will be producing the new 30th anniversary script and score prior to its publication. This twisty tale of a mother and daughter is fast-paced and very funny, and hilariously spoofs famous Broadway musicals and films from Gypsy and Mame to The Bad Seed and All About Eve. Ruthless! The Musical is the story of a bland housewife, Judy Denmark, and her adorable, but sociopathic, 8 year old daughter Tina. Encouraged by her talent agent, Tina will do anything to get the lead role in her school play including doing away with the leading girl! The show premiered Off-Broadway with the very young and talented Britney Spears and Natalie Portman.


The small ensemble cast includes Bart Herman, Larissa Carrick, Sara Hohman, Gillian Kaschak, Shannon Mitchell, Kate L. Miller, Jade Boffo, and understudy, Anna Zurcher.


The production staff includes Chester Boffo, assistant director; Micah Carrick, musical director; Bart Herman, choreographer; Jack Pottmeyer, scenic design; Mikey Rogers, lighting design; Anna Zurcher, costumes; Pam Douglas, props; Elizabeth Thomakos, set dressing; Paul Dunlap, master carpenter; Debi DeVore, wigs; Jay Cochran, production stage manager; Halle Holmes, backstage manager; Kait Gallagher-Wilsterman, social media; Allison Morris, photography; and Lee Elliott, publicity.
