Larry Harmon as Herbie and Lisa Breithaupt as Rose rehearse for the next Loveland Stage company production of GYPSY opening March 6.

Before the set for Cole was actually put away auditions were held for GYPSY, the next production in Loveland Stage Company’s 2019-2020 season. With  music by Jule Styne, lyrics by Stephen Sondheim and  a book by Arthur Laurents, the show is loosely based on the 1957 autobiography of Gypsy Rose Lee, the famous striptease artist. The story mainly focuses on the mother, Rose, whose name has become synonymous with ”stage door Mom.”

Michael Harris-Kiser is directing the production along with Marjory Clegg as choreographer, Brian Harvey as Vocal Director  and Jeanne BIlyeu as Vocal Director.

“Let Me Entertain You” and “Everything’s Coming Up Roses” are two of the most popular songs from the musical which has had four revivals on Broadway, a Tony Award in 1989 and has been made in to a movie, “Gypsy” in 1962 starring Natalie Wood and a made for tv movie in 1993 starring Bette Midler.

The production is being presented with arrangements by Tams Witmark and will open March 6 and continue through March 22.  Sunday matinees will be at 3 pm and Friday and Saturday shows will begin at 7:30 p.m. For more information see the web site at www.lovelandstagecompany.org.
