Los Altos Stage Company is holding open auditions for Ruthless, The Musical! Music by Marvin Laird, Lyrics and Book by Joel Paley

Directed and Choreographed by Gary Ferguson

Eight-year-old Tina Denmark knows she was born to play Pippi Longstocking, and she’ll do anything to win the part in her school musical. Her mother, fellow students, and the rest of the world had better watch out because nothing will stop her quest for stardom!! Cunningly spoofing classic musicals and campy films from Gypsy to The Bad Seed, this aggressively outrageous musical garnered rave reviews during its long Off-Broadway run.
