I'm on stage first week of November in Thoroughly Modern Millie. This show won the Tony award for best musical in 2002. So despite many people thinking its based on the - rather dated - 1967 film with Julie Andrews its quite different. For a start all bar one of the songs were new in the musical, and its funnier.
Thoroughly Modern Millie tells the story of young Millie Dillmount, who has just moved to the city in search of a new life for herself. It’s a New York full of intrigue and jazz - a time when women were entering the workforce and the rules of love and social behavior were changing forever. Millie samples the "thoroughly modern" flapper life, makes friends, finds unexpected romance and nearly gets caught up in a white slavery ring. Oh and I'm playing Jimmy Smith.
SIMADS are presenting the show at the Burgess Hall, St Ives, between 6 November and 9th November. Directed by Scott Andrews, with Musical Director Alana Thackray.
