Dexter Community Players Presents Gypsy

Touted as one of the greatest musicals of all time, this show features a lush score by Jule Styne, the inventive lyrics of a young Stephen Sondheim, with the funny- and ultimately heartbreaking- book by Arthur Laurents. DCP’s production is directed by Connor Rhodes and assisted by Keshia Oliver, with musical direction by Brian Rose and choreography by Matilda Seagraves.

 

Gypsy tells the story of the dreams and efforts of one hungry, powerhouse of a woman to get her two daughters into show business. Gypsy is loosely based on the 1957 memoir of famous striptease artist Gypsy Rose Lee, entitled Gypsy: Memoirs of America’s Most Celebrated Stripper. The memoir and the musical focus on the story of Gypsy Rose Lee’s mother, Rose, and earned Rose a place in the theatrical and literary canon as the quintessential, archetypal “Stage Mother.” 

Gypsy  features songs that have become standards of the musical theatre canon, including “Some People,” “Let Me Entertain You,” “Rose’s Turn,” and the show-stopping “Everything’s Coming Up Roses”.

 

Performances run July 12-14, 19 & 20 at Copeland Auditorium located at 7714 Ann Arbor Street in Dexter, MI. Tickets can be purchased through the link at dexterplayers.com and at the door.
