12 Jul 2018 to 22 Jul 2018
Coming up this July at Canberra Academy of Dramatic Art is Ruthless! – a dark and funny musical about a girl with big dreams of a showbiz career… who’ll go to any lengths to see those dreams come true.
Eight-year-old Tina Denmark knows she was born to play Pippi Longstocking, and she will do anything to win the part in her school musical… ‘Anything’ includes murdering the leading lady! This aggressively outrageous musical hit garnered rave reviews during its long Off-Broadway run which opened with Britney Spears in the leading role, also launching the career of Natalie Portman.
Ruthless! is a barrel of laughs, blending high farce with its own brand of darkness. Directed by Glenn Braithwaite, the production, suitable for ages 12+, will make its Canberra debut on 12 July, running for six performances until 21 July.
