The Un-Common Theatre Company announces auditions for "Thoroughly Modern Millie May 2, 3, 4 Orpheum Theatre, Foxboro

"Millie" is a high-spirited musical romp that has all of New York dancing the Charleston. It's the zany 1920's musical that took Broadway by storm! Taking place in New York City in 1922, Thoroughly 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 movie, the stage version of Thoroughly Modern Millie includes a full score of new songs and bright dance numbers. Filled with frisky flappers, dashing leading men and a dragon-lady of a villainess audiences will love to hate, Thoroughly Modern Millie is a perfectly constructed evening of madcap merriment. . The production will take place at the Orpheum Theatre in Foxboro on May 2, 3 and 4. For more information about this production and Un-Common Theatre Co, contact Katherine Dowd or visit the website at www.uncommontheatre.com.
