In 2002, “Thoroughly Modern Millie,” was the most awarded new show on Broadway, taking home six Tony Awards including Best Musical. On Thursday, March 30 at 7:30 p.m., the Bologna Performing Arts Center on the campus of Delta State University will play host to this “thoroughly” entertaining musical. One of the most sought after touring productions of the year, this show will be fun for the entire family.
Based on the Oscar winning film starring Julie Andrews, “Millie” is the story of a small-town girl who turns a big-time town upside down. The production takes audiences on a fun-filled ride back in time and drops them off in the midst of the Roaring Twenties. From vivacious flappers to the intrigue of white-slavery, the musical takes place in Manhattan, 1922, with all the jazz-age razzmatazz you want in a big, bright, Broadway blockbuster.
“We’re very fortunate to have this tour of ‘Thoroughly Modern Millie’ come to the BPAC,” David Dallas, Executive Director of the Bologna Performing Arts Center contends. “It’s a funny story that audiences of all ages will enjoy and from the production requirements, it looks like it is going to be a real extravaganza. Our hall will be an incredible venue for a show this style and I’m just hopeful everyone will be able to come, see it and enjoy the night.”
