The Tony Award-nominated musical tells the story of the ultimate stage mother, Rose Hovick, as she pushes her two daughters, June and Louise, toward fame and fortune in the 1920s and ’30s. They travel across the United States just as vaudeville is dying and burlesque is born.
Directed by Tim Spradlin and based on the memoirs of famed stripper Gypsy Rose Lee, the show’s score includes such classics as “Let Me Entertain You,” “Some People,” “You’ll Never Get Away from Me” and “If Momma Were Married.”
Show dates are May 12-15 and 19-22 at Hedback Community Theatre, 1847 N. Alabama St., where tickets are $15 for youths 17 and younger and $23 for adults. Tickets for the Thursday productions are $10. Call 926-6630 for reservations and show times.
