Roanoke.com - over 3 years
From my Inbox to you, from the Little Town Players: While the title “Gypsy” suggest that this musical is about the famous stripper Gypsy Rose Lee, it is really about her hard-driven, determined stage mother, Mama Rose (Melissa Kennedy). In the beginning, Rose concentrates on her talented younger daughter, June (Skye Grant), leaving older, less talented Louise (Hannah Steele) in the cold. When older June (Jennifer Brown) tires of being cute and runs away, Rose turns to Louise instead. Louise eventually becomes “Gypsy” (Rachel Blomquist) and Rose is left by herself, her aspirations for her kids realized, but her own show-business dreams still unrealized.
Additional cast members include Sarah Carter, Jeannette Ogilvie and Taylor Sumler as the over the hill strippers who show Louise the ropes.
