El Dorado Musical Theatre recently cast 37 local performers, ages 12 to 20, in its upcoming production, “Thoroughly Modern Millie.”

The show features Julia Adams as Millie Dillmount, Zack Collins as Jimmy Smith, Kelly Maur as Miss Dorothy Brown, Andrew Wilson as Trevor Graydon and 33 talented, tapping performers. This is an Encore production cast by audition only.

“Thoroughly Modern Millie” is a high-spirited musical romp that has all of New York dancing the Charleston. Taking place in New York City in 1922, this show 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 at a time when women were entering the work force and the rules of love and social behavior were changing forever.

Based on the 1967  movie, the stage version of “Thoroughly Modern Millie” includes wonderful songs and rousing dance numbers. Filled with frisky flappers, dashing leading men and a dragon-lady of a villainess audiences will love to hate, this show won six Tony Awards including Best Musical in 2002.

Debbie Wilson, EDMT’s artistic director, directs and choreographs this high-energy production which is rated PG.
