‘Ruthless the musical’ opens Friday at Chester Theatre Group’s Black River Playhouse


The Chester Theatre Group will present New York Outer Critics Circle award-winning musical Ruthless! The Musical at the Black River Playhouse on Grove Street in Chester, NJ. November 29 –December 7, 2014.

Performances are Friday and Saturdays at 8:00 and Sundays at 2:00pm. Tickets are $25. Seniors over 65 and students under 18 are $23. Tickets may be purchased online at or call 908-879-7304.

Ruthless! The Musical, a hilarious parody of Broadway musicals and iconic Hollywood movies, tells the story of suburban housewife Judy Denmark and her daughter Tina, who is the greatest song-and-dance sensation to ever hit the third grade. She's cute. She sings. She dances. And she would KILL to get the lead role in her school play.

With book and lyrics by Joel Paley and music by Marvin Laird, this outrageously funny musical comedy deliciously skewers agents, stage mothers, critics, school drama teachers, over-sized theatrical egos, precocious showbiz brats and so much more. It’s “Toddlers and Tiaras” meets “The Bad Seed.”

The talented cast of Ruthless! includes:

Judy Denmark………Maria Ludwig Brodeur

Lita Encore…..Lisa Deane

Louise Lerman/Eve...Raven Dunbar

Miss Thorn/ Ms. Block…Beth Amiano Gleason

Sylvia St. Croix……Michael Foley

Tina Denmark…….Molly Farrell

The production team includes Cindy Alexander (Director), Cliff Parrish (Musical Director), Robert Longstreet (Assistant Director), Megan Ferrentinos (Choreographer), Ellen Fraker-Glasscock (Producer), Diane Butler (Stage Manager) and Steve Catron (Set Design/Construction).
