Overview/Synopsis
 
Thoroughly Modern Millie is the zany new 1920's musical romp that will have everyone dancing the Charleston! Taking place in New York City in 1922, 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. Filled with frisky flappers, dashing leading men and a dragon-lady of a villainess audiences will love to hate, you'll present a perfectly constructed evening of madcap merriment. Songs include: Not for the Life of Me / Thoroughly Modern Millie, Not for the Life of Me (Tag), Not for the Life of Me (Reprise), The Speed Test, What Do I Need With Love, Jimmy, Back at Work, Forget About the Boy, Ah! Sweet Mystery of Life / I'm Falling in Love with Someone, I Turned the Corner, Muqin, Long As I'm Here With You, Gimme Gimme, The Speed Test (Reprise), Ah! Sweet Mystery (Reprise), Finale.

Millie is the sweet, classic ingénue with pluck. The role requires excellent vocal chops; in fact, no other character in the Broadway Junior collection of shows sings as much as Millie. The role of Millie is the perfect star turn for that extra special performer. Cast a young woman with an excellent Broadway style voice with lots of stamina. Millie must also have charisma, a great sense of comedy, good acting skills and be able to hold her own as a dancer.

Jimmy is our male counterpart to Millie. Self-assured and cocky, cast a Jimmy who is charming, a great singer, a reasonable mover and who has a good sense of comic timing. Jimmy should be attractive in a cute, goofy sort of way.

Mrs. Meers is the villain of our story. Think Cruella DeVille meets Miss Hannigan. Cast an over-the-top "scenery chewer" who has an excellent sense of comedic timing.

Miss Dorothy is the perfect role for a young lady with a voice that is more classical than Broadway. She should be attractive, a good actress and should contrast physically with Millie.

Miss Flannery is the office manager. She's uptight (think librarian) and stern, a real
