It's 1922 in the auditorium at West Hollow Middle School, as students performed the wonderfully upbeat production, Thoroughly Modern Millie. Complete with song, dance, tappers and flappers, the story revolves around Millie Dilmount who arrives in New York to make it as a new woman, "a modern!"
Along the way, Millie encounters some unforgettable characters: the sinister rooming house proprietor Mrs. Meers--"sad to be all alone in the world", the sweet and demure Dorothy Brown, and paper clip salesman Jimmy Smith who becomes the love of her life.
Thoroughly Modern Millie is best remembered for its 1967 musical film version starring Julie Andrews as Millie, Mary Tyler Moore as Dorothy, Beatrice Lillie as Mrs. Meers, and John Gavin as Jimmy, to name some. Directed by George Roy Hill, it was later adapted for Broadway, premiering in 2002 at the Marquis Theatre.
West Hollow's production November 30th and December 1st, with three performances, was directed by Art Teacher/Drama Director Matthew Petrucci.
