  AU PLAYHOUSE TO PRESENT THOROUGHLY MODERN MILLIE

 

2010-2011 theatre season begins with blockbuster musical

The Playhouse at Anderson University will begin its new theatre season with Thoroughly Modern Millie, a high-spirited musical set in 1920s New York City. The production will be presented in the Henderson Auditorium in AU’s Rainey Fine Arts Center on October 21-23 at 7:30 pm. The Anderson community is invited to enjoy this delightful song-and-dance production, based on the Tony Award-Winning musical and the Academy Award-Winning film.

Thoroughly Modern Millie tells the story of Millie Dillmount, the lovable small-town girl who travels to New York City and encounters a series of comical adventures. Dr. David Larson, Dean of AU’s College of Visual and Performing Arts, says, “Millie will be hugely entertaining. The production was a smash hit on Broadway eight years ago. This show is the definition of a musical theatre blockbuster, vibrant, fun and very tuneful. The tap dancing alone is amazing.  Don’t miss Thoroughly Modern Millie.”

All are invited to attend the production. General admission is $15, tickets for seniors and military are $10, and student tickets are $5. For more information, contact the Anderson University Playhouse at (864) 231-2080.
