Mama Rose is back!  Last performed by SCCT in 2005, The musical Gypsy will take the stage once again at the State Theatre in August.  Tickets are available now!  Mama Rose is a wildly determined stage mother trying to make her two young daughters into famous vaudeville performers. At first, she focuses on the younger, cuter June. But when June runs off to marry her beau, Tulsa, Rose concentrates on her other daughter, Louise. Louise, filled with hidden talent, becomes a star. This classic Broadway musical features memorable songs like “Everything’s Coming Up Roses” and “Together Wherever We Go”.
