“Gypsy”, book by Arthur Laurents, music by Jule Styne and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim, is the musical which has been referred to as the greatest American musical by numerous critics and writers. “Gypsy”, also known as the back stage musical, is the story of a hard-driven and determined stage mother, Mama Rose. It follows the dreams and efforts of Rose to raise two daughters to perform on stage and casts an affectionate eye on the hardships of show business life.

Rose, June, and Louise travel across the United States during the era when vaudeville was dying and burlesque was born. The show encompasses an approximate 20 year span in the life of this family and the show business characters they share the stage with. The character of Louise is based on Gypsy Rose Lee, the famous strip tease artist. The character of June is based on her sister, the actress June Havoc. The musical contains many popular upbeat standards including “Everything’s Coming Up Roses”,” Together Wherever We Go”,” Small World”, “Some People”, and “Let Me Entertain You”.

Rose will be portrayed by Ginger Rasmussen with Anna Van Aartsen as Baby June and Noelle McCarthy as Baby Louise. The sisters later are played by Jill Jansma as Dainty June and Amanda Rust as Louise aka Gypsy Rose Lee. The stable supportive manager and father figure, Herbie, is portrayed by Scott Van Aartsen.

Due to the era this story is set in the “sets” will feature the vintage drops that originally hung in the Rapids Theatre. They were the type and style of background found in many of the vaudeville theatres of the 1920’s and 30’s.
