Eastwood Musical Society presents "Thoroughly Modern Millie", the musical!
Show Dates: 24 October - 8 November 2014
Tickets are available now!
Based on the 1967 film of the same name, Thoroughly Modern Millie tells the story of a small-town girl, Millie Dillmount, who comes to New York City to marry for money instead of love – a thoroughly modern aim in 1922, when women were just entering the workforce.
Millie soon begins to take delight in the flapper lifestyle, but problems arise when she checks into a hotel owned by the leader of a white slavery ring in China. The style of the musical is comic pastiche. Like the film on which it is based, it interpolates new tunes with some previously written songs.
Like the film on which it is based, it interpolates new tunes with some previously written songs – including Tchaikovsky's The Nutcracker, My Mammy and show tunes from Naughty Marietta and Gilbert & Sullivan’s Ruddigore.
