Hi-Liners' "Thoroughly Modern Millie" Begins Sept. 12th
Burien’s Hi-Liners are presenting “Thoroughly Modern Millie” beginning with special weekend “preview” shows Sept. 12th & 13th at Renton’s Carco Theater, then continuing for the two weekends of September 19th/20th and Sept. 26th/27th at the Highline Performing Arts Center, 401 South 152nd Street.
What do you do after a show like Peter Pan? That was the sixty-four dollar question for The Hi-Liners and their Artistic Director Kathleen Edwards.
â€œEvery year our big fall MainStage show is the highlight of our season. After â€œflyingâ€ Peter Pan all over the Highline Performing Arts Center last year, we were not sure how we were going to top a show like that. Thoroughly Modern Millie is a â€œnewerâ€ Broadway musical that we believe will challenge our kids and our organization to keep moving forward, in other words, just the show we are looking for!â€
Taking Broadway by storm in 2002, “Thoroughly Modern Millie” is based on the Oscar-winning film starring Julie Andrews and Mary Tyler Moore. This romantic musical is filled with tremendous dancing that captures the style and mood of the roaring twenties. Bring your tap shoes and tap back to Manhattan at the height of the Jazz Age when women were just beginning to enter the workforce, raising their hemlines and rewriting the rules of love.
This feel good performance directed by Kathleen Edwards and choreographed by Taryn Darr, (most recently seen in the 5th Avenue Theaterâ€™s production of “Catch Me If You Can”) will have you humming â€œeverything today is thoroughly modernâ€ for weeks!
“Thoroughly Modern Millie” will have a special â€œpreviewâ€ weekend performance at the Renton Carco Theater on September 12th and 13th, then will play for just two more weekends â€“ September 19, 20, 26 & 27 at the Highline Performing Arts Center, 401 South 152nd Street, Burien.
