Thoroughly Modern Millie

September 9 - 25, 2016

By Dick Scanlan & Richard Morris | Lyrics by Jeanine Tesori | Directed by Stacey Driskell

It’s the Roaring Twenties, and young Millie Dillmount has just stepped off the train in New York City — a “thoroughly modern” place filled with frisky flappers, dapper gents and a dragon-lady villainess. We’re sure you’ll agree — this song-and-dance extravaganza is thoroughly marvelous!

Based on the 1967 movie and first presented on Broadway in 2002, the show won the Tony Award for Best Musical plus five more. Dick Scanlan and Richard Morris collaborated on the play. Jeanine Tesori wrote the music and Scanlan the lyrics.

Stacey Driskell will direct this season opener.
