Journey East Presents "Thoroughly Modern Millie, Jr." at the Washburn

Journey Theater Arts Group presents THOROUGHLY MODERN MILLIE JR. a Youth Theater Production that runs two weekends at the Washburn Performing Arts Center in Washougal High School.

THOROUGHLY MODERN MILLIE JR., based on the zany contemporary musical that took Broadway by storm, is the high-spirited musical romp that has all of New York dancing the Charleston!

In New York City, 1922, young Millie Dillmount has just moved to the big city in search of a new life for herself. It’s a New York full of intrigue and jazz – in a time when women were entering the workforce and the rules of love and social behavior were changing forever.

Filled with fun flappers, dashing leading men and a dragon-lady of a villainess audiences will love to hate, THOROUGHLY MODERN MILLIE JR. is a perfectly-constructed production of madcap merriment. Based on the classic movie, the stage version includes a full score of new songs and bright dance numbers. With the role of Millie Dillmount, musical theatre has found a new heroine for the ages in THOROUGHLY MODERN MILLIE JR.!

Opening the day after Thanksgiving, THOROUGHLY MODERN MILLIE JR. will be a great holiday outing for families!
