We are still looking for our Kansas in the Ensemble! If you didn't get a chance to audition, we are still seeking one man age 16+ who can sing and move in the role of Kansas in this production. Contact Production Manager Ginger Webb at gs_webb@yahoo.com to set up an audition.  

 

Set during the vaudeville era, Gypsy is about a relentless stage mother, Rose, who travels the country with her two daughters, June and Louise, and their manager, Herbie. While June and Louise wish their mother would settle down and marry Herbie, Rose continues to pursue dreams of stardom for her girls. When June deserts the act, Rose turns her attention to the shy Louise, whom she hopes to fashion into a star. When the act is booked into a burlesque house by mistake, Louise is forced into the spotlight and Gypsy Rose Lee is born.
