millieFRI-SUN JUNE 17-26 – THOROUGHLY MODERN MILLIE JUNIOR – It’s 1922, and small-town girl Millie Dillmount has just arrived in New York City, ready to make her dreams come true. Millie’s plan is simple: find a job as a secretary for an eligible bachelor, and then marry him. It doesn’t take long, however, for Millie’s “thoroughly modern” plan to go awry. Her conniving landlady plots to kidnap Millie’s best friend, her wealthy boss seems entirely uninterested in her flirtations, and — worst of all — the man with whom she falls head over heels in love doesn’t have a penny to his name. Winner of the 2002 Tony Award for Best Musical, this bright, funny, and charming musical comedy is a heartfelt valentine to New York City and the people who love her. This production is part of our education program and will be performed by local high school students. Tickets ($10) available at the box office, by calling 770-293-0080 or online www.earlsmithstrand.org.
