Ruthless! parodies 1950s film for big laughs as New Harmony Theatre season continues

This musical parody of 1950s movies offers outrageous humor in place of the suspense and melodrama we found in the films it recalls. Single tickets are $30 for an adult, $28 for seniors age 60+, $10 for ages 25 and under, and $24 for USI employees. Season package tickets are also available. Shows start at 7:30 p.m. on Friday nights, 2 and 7:30 p.m. on Saturdays, and a 2 p.m. matinee on Sundays. To purchase tickets, or for more information, visit or call the box office at 812-465-1668.
