Suburban housewife Judy Denmark is happy leading her normal, ordinary life, but her daughter, Tina, is a born Broadway sensation ready to bust out of third grade onto the Great White Way. She's cute! She dances! She sings! And she would KILL to get the lead role in her school play! 

This hysterical and campy musical traces the story of eight-year-old child actress Tina Denmark (Coco Dollon of Montclair), her split-personality mother Judy (Jessica Pivko of Parsippany) and Tina’s stylish but pushy agent, Sylvia St. Croix (Alan George of Weehawken), who has all the charm of  Joan Crawford in a daycare center. The play also features Tina’s teacher (Cheryl Marocco Hartley of Montville) who is a failed actress who feels trapped teaching third grade. Tina’s grandmother (Claudia Metz of Boonton), a theater critic who brings to mind Ethel Merman, and the personal assistant (Lisa Annitti of Bloomingdale) who’s backstabbing, clutching-at-fame tactics makes us want to fasten our seatbelts in anticipation of a bumpy night.

Ruthless! The Musical is a roaring good time, and you will be SLAYED by this killer musical comedy!
