RUTHLESS is an award-winning comedy satire.  The comedy is broad and unapologetic.  Characters are bigger-than-life and completely invested in what they are doing.  Every character has at least one featured number, so strong vocals and comedic timing will be important in all cast members.  Those auditioning should prepare one song from musical theatre and a comedic monologue.  


Character Descriptions:


TINA DENMARK

An 8-year old aspiring “triple threat” with her sights aggressively set on the lead in her school production of Pippi Longstockings.  The character ranges from 8 to 12 years of age in the production.  Dance experience is an asset for this role.   Note:  Both children and young adults will be considered for this role.   

JUDY DENMARK

Mother of Tina; a perfect housewife and mother with hidden talents.

LITA ENCORE

A theatre critic and grandmother to Tina.  A brash, opinionated newspaper “broad” who hates musicals.

MYRNA THORN

An actress reluctantly turned third-grade teacher with a big ego.  She carries all of the angst of a woman who works with large groups of children all day long.

SYLVIA ST. CROIX

The occasional narrator of the show, Sylvia is a theatrical manager with a mysterious past; a cross between Mama Rose and Auntie Mame.  Note: In keeping with tradition, both male and female performers will be considered for the role of Sylvia St. Croix, but the character is unmistakably a female role.

LOUISE LERMAN

A spoiled, rich nine-year-old with no interest in theatre and Tina’s reluctant rival for the role of Pippi.  

EVE

An overly salacious personal assistant with ulterior motives.

Note:  The roles of Louise and Eve will be doubled by the same adult actor.
