Ruthless! The Musical is a student produced show with the goals of creating opportunities for theatre majors, and solidifying an official student production program for the University of Utah's department of theatre.
As a student of the University of Utah's Actor Training Program I have been given one piece of advice from professional actors over and over again. "If you aren't getting work, then make your own." This is the goal of Ruthless! To give students an opportunity to make their own art. As well as acting, students participating in Ruthless! will learn different skills behind the scenes such as, fundraising, renting, handling social media, and working in the production team to create their own show from scratch.
The University of Utah currently doesn't have a student production program where students are able to work without being lead by professors. The importance of actors learning skills in self driven projects is crucial, and Ruthless! is hoping to represent what a student production program can achieve.
Our production team is currently working on preparing for the shows rehearsal period. Budgeting, contacting local high schools, and researching source materials to ready ourselves. We will be auditioning in December rehearsing January through march when our performances will take place. Our auditions will be open auditions focused towards any students interested in being involved onstage, or backstage.
Your contribution will be a great help to make not only this show but an official program a reality. We will use your donations to buy set pieces, rent the rites to the show, costumes, and props, buying materials, giving those involved a small stipend, paying for advertising, and anything left over will go to towards funding the student Open Door Company working towards establishing an official student production program at the University of Utah.
Thank you so much for your willingness to learn about our program and get involved if you are interested in helping out, buying an advertisement space in our playbill, donating props, costumes, or set pieces or have any questions you can reach us at email@example.com
