Filled with fun flappers, dashing leading men, and a villainess audiences will love to hate, Thoroughly Modern Millie Jr. is a clever adaptation of the six-time Tony Award-winning Best Musical and the Academy Award-winning film. Thoroughly Modern Millie Jr., is the high-spirited musical romp that has all of New York dancing the Charleston! It’s 1922 in New York City and a young Millie Dillmount has just moved to the big apple in search of a new life. Her grand plan is to find a job as a secretary for a wealthy man and then marry him. However, her plan goes completely awry. Millie’s wealthy boss is slow in proposing marriage, and the man she actually falls in love with doesn’t have a dime to his name – or so he tells her. What’s a small town girl to do?
