Drayton Entertainment’s Thoroughly Modern Millie Is a Tap Dancer’s Delight

Drayton Entertainment is throwing it back to the era of short hemlines, glamorous frocks, head turning hats and secret speakeasys with their production of Thoroughly Modern Millie.

The Roaring 20s highlighted changes in society and that is what Millie has set out to do herself.  She is moving away from her family in Kansas in order to start a new modern life in New York City.  She plans to make herself a “modern” but when things don’t go as planned she is forced to create a new plan, one that involves climbing, or should I say tapping, her way to the top of society’s ladder.

Thoroughly Modern Millie Will Have You Tapping Along

What seems to be the by-gone art of tap dancing receives a grand revival in this Broadway style musical.  Almost every song includes some form of tap choreography.  Even the elevator at Millie’s rooming house requires tap dancing in order for it to operate.

With each song and dance routine Millie’s life begins to change and become more modern each day.  As the story evolves so do Millie’s plans.  Find out if Millie is able to tap her way to the top by seeing this Tony Award winning show performed by Drayton Entertainment on stage at the St Jacob’s Country Playhouse this summer.

Young Millie Dillmount has just arrived in the Big Apple in search of a new life. She’s determined to better her station by becoming a secretary for a wealthy man and then convincing him to marry her. But, it doesn’t take long before Millie’s “thoroughly modern” plan goes awry.
