Hailed by many as one of America’s greatest shows, Gypsy tells the story of the dreams and efforts of Rose: a hungry, powerhouse of a woman who wants nothing more than to get her two daughters into showbusiness.
Gypsy is loosely based on the 1957 memoir of famous burlesque performer Gypsy Rose Lee and tells of the turbulent ups and downs of growing up on the road (and under constant pressure to perform).
With a gripping plot that explores everything from lost love to family betrayal, Gypsy asks the question: ‘what lengths would you go to to succeed?’
Full of fantastic numbers like Everything’s Coming up Roses, Gotta Get a Gimmick and Rose’s Turn, this unique production by award-winning youth theatre company RicNic Hampshire is certain to entertain you!
