ACT presents one of the great musicals of the 20th century. “Gypsy” tells the story of the dreams and determination of Mama Rose, the quintessential Stage Mother, a hungry, powerhouse of a woman who will stop at nothing to see her daughters become famous, leading one of them into a career as cabaret legend, Gypsy Rose Lee. The musical recounts the saga of the “stage gypsies” traveling the nationwide circuit of vaudeville theatres (just like the Mishler). Offering up rousing numbers like “Everything’s Coming Up Roses,” “Let Me Entertain You,” and “You Gotta Get a Gimmick,” it’s a clever, funny, and provocative story that’s strikingly relevant more than 60 years after it premiered.
All of these are presented by Altoona Community Theatre. The images for each one are attached! Thanks!
