Thoroughly Modern Millie Thoroughly Modern Millie Auditions
February 10 – 11

The winner of six Tony Awards, including Best Musical, Thoroughly Modern Millie was the 2002 season's most awarded new show on Broadway! Thoroughly Modern Millie takes you back to the Jazz Age in New York City, when "moderns," including a flapper named Millie Dillmount, were bobbing their hair, raising their hemlines, entering the workforce, and rewriting the rules of love. This high-spirited musical romp is a delightful valentine to the long-standing spirit of New York City and the people who seek to discover themselves there.

NOTE: Due to a major unrelated conflict, we no longer have a performance on Friday, April 20. We will move it to Thursday, April 19. Saturday and Sunday performances will go on as usual.

Auditions are by appointment. Auditions are open to 5th grade and older.
