Tickets are available now for two performances on Saturday, May 24th at 3:00 and 7:00. Tickets are $20 for Adult and $15 for Students w/ID.

In the fast-paced 1920s, Mille Dillmount from Kansas moves to New York City to find a new life for herself and to marry a rich man. She samples the "thoroughly modern" flapper life, makes friends, and finds unexpected romance in this stage version of the 1967 film musical. Filled with fun flappers, dashing leading men and a dragon-lady of villainess audiences will love to hate, Thoroughly Modern Millie Jr. is a perfectly constructed evening of madcap merriment.
Thoroughly Modern Millie Jr. features the Senior Company from Musical Theater Center who receive conservatory training in ballet, jazz, tap, vocals, and acting, in addition to rehearsing for the show. Talent runs deep with this group, who shine at delivering polished, professional level productions that will delight audiences of all ages!
