MIX The Bad Seed and All About Eve with Gypsy and get the stage mother of all mu­si­cals when award-win­ning Ruth­less: The Mu­si­cal.

Beau­ti­ful and ta­lented eight-year-old Tina Denmark will do any­thing to play the lead in the school play – “in­clud­ing mur­der­ing the lead­ing lady”.

Where does such re­mark­able tal­ent and un­stop­pable am­bi­tion come from?

While Tina spends time at a re­form school for psy­cho­pathic in­genues, her mother Judy de­cides that she should be fa­mous as well and be­comes a Broad­way diva.

Di­rected by Allen Blach­ford and Kate McIn­tosh, Ruth­less fea­tures Bella Free­man (10) as Tina, Nat Burbage, Genevieve New­man, Dixie John­stone, Rachel Mon­amy and Casey Ed­wards.

Au­di­ences can ex­pect a laugh-a-minute, campy and brazen spoof that is fun for the whole dys­func­tional fam­ily.

Due to some coarse lan­guage and adult themes, the pro­duc­tion is suit­able for chil­dren over 13 years old.

Ruth­less is the third pro­duc­tion in the Koor­liny Arts Cen­tre and Kwinana In­dus­tries Coun­cil 2017 Per­for­mance Sea­son.

Bella Free­man (10) plays Tina.
