Eight-year-old Tina Denmark was born to be a star. Nothing, and no one, is going to stand in her way… except maybe her mother. A send-up of high-camp classics like ‘Gypsy’, and a parody of ‘The Bad Seed’ and ‘All About Eve,’ this musical farce is fast, furious and loaded with charm. In Harlequin’s production, the cast of eight over-the-top female roles are played by six actors, many of whom are both Olympia locals and Harlequin first-timers. General admission tickets are $42, Senior 60+/Military $38, Student/Under 25 $25. Rush Tickets (half-hour prior to show time) $20; $15 Senior/Military/Student/Under 25.
