About Ruthless! The Musical

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 on an uproarious journey with 8-year-old Tina Denmark, who'll stop at nothing to seize the spotlight. This production, with a catchy score by Marvin Laird and witty lyrics by Joel Paley, is a rollicking spoof of classics like Gypsy, Mame, and the iconic thriller The Bad Seed.

It’s a wild, sidesplitting take on beloved classics that promises thunderous laughter, spicy humour, and an overdose of overacting and campiness. Viewer discretion is advised for those ready to embrace the chaos and comedy of this unforgettable musical.

And wait, there's more! Dolly Diamond is stepping into the iconic role of Sylvia St. Croix, determined to turn the theatre upside down. With a sense of humour 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!
