FALLBROOK — With timeless tapping and wonderful flapping, Fallbrook Players’ production of “Thoroughly Modern Millie” promises to be a thoroughly good time for the entire family.
The romantic comedy follows small-town Millie Dillmount as she arrives in 1920s New York to see how the other half lives. What starts out as a bold declaration of her independence turns into a whirlwind of money, romance, kidnapping and tap-dancing stenographers.
“There has been such anticipation to see what Fallbrook Players would do after the huge success of ‘Cats,’” said producer Jane Stimmel. “With ‘Millie,’ we have the perfect combination: a show that won six Tony awards, many of the same talented actors who won National Youth Theatre’s Best Production of the Year for ‘Luann,’ along with the same choreographer who won National Youth Theatre’s Best Choreography of the Year for ‘Cats.’”
“We chose ‘Millie’ because people want to go to the theater to be wowed with huge dance numbers, enjoy a feel-good story and to laugh so hard they forget any stress that might be in their lives right now,” she added.
“Thoroughly Modern Millie” plays at the Bob Burton Center for the Performing Arts on the campus of Fallbrook High School October 2-11. Friday and Saturday performances are at 7:30 p.m., with Sunday matinees at 2 p.m. Tickets can be purchased at http://www.fallbrookplayers.com.
