Thoroughly Modern Millie has all of New York dancing the Charleston. Filled with frisky flappers, dashing leading men, and a dragon-lady audiences will love to hate,Â Grand Forks Central High School will be performing this high-spirited musicalÂ in the Central High School Auditorium this weekend. Performance times for the show will be at 7:30 PM on Thursday, March 4th and Friday, March 5th, then again at 2 PM on Sunday, March 6th.
Taking place in New York City in 1922,Â ThoroughlyÂ 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. Based on the popular 1967 film, the stage version includes a full score of new songs and bright dance numbers by Grand Forks Central High School’s finest performers.
