Two Yorkies, Kathleen R. (Grade 9) and Anna P. (Grade 7) are performing this week in the musical “Thoroughly Modern Millie”. The girls are part of a local community musical theatre company for children in Grades 4 through 9, Encore Musical Theatre. These dedicated young people rehearse every week from September through June in order to put on their full-length musical theatre production in June.
This year’s show promises to be entertaining, with a wonderful set and colourful costumes. The roaring 20’s is celebrated through comedy, song and dance. Thoroughly Modern Millie is a show for young and old alike.
If you would like to see the show, it plays this week, Thursday, June 6 @ 7pm; Friday June 7 @ 7pm; and Saturday, June 8 @ 2pm and 7pm at the Norman Rothstein Theatre at 41st and Oak. Tickets may be purchased at www.encoremusicaltheatre.org.
