Community Theater Auditions in Hibbing, Minnesota for “Ruthless: The Musical”

Ruthless! The Musical

Book and Lyrics by Joel Paley
Music by Marvin Laird

Dates: May 21 – May 23, 6-7:30 PM
Location: Lincoln Elementary School, 1114 E. 23rd St., Hibbing, MN

Our 2024 summer production, Ruthless! The Musical, is a killer comedy about a little girl who isn’t as innocent as she appears. Eight-year-old Tina Denmark knows she was born to play Pippi Longstocking, and she will do anything to win the part in her school musical. “Anything” includes murdering the leading lady! Tina’s antics also change the lives of her doting mother and dramatic talent agent.

Looking for more auditions in Minnesota?

This aggressively outrageous musical hit garnered rave reviews during its long Off-Broadway run. Broadway veteran Laura Bell Bundy played Tina during the show’s first performances, and her understudies were Natalie Portman and Britney Spears—yes, you read that right!

Auditions are scheduled for May 21-23 (Tuesday through Thursday) at Lincoln Elementary School in Hibbing. Singing and acting auditions begin at 6 p.m. each night. Those wishing to audition may attend either Tuesday or Wednesday night and should expect to be present for about an hour and a half. Callbacks are reserved for Thursday. A list of scheduling conflicts is requested for May 24 – July 28.

Despite the age of the youngest characters, we ask that those auditioning be at least 16 years old. (Tina is no Shirley Temple!) Sylvia is played by a man in many, but not all, productions, and Mr. Denmark almost always speaks from offstage. There will also be opportunities to help with set construction, hair and makeup, and ushering.
