Why You Should See The Hi-Liners’ “Thoroughly Modern Millie” This Weekend
Burien’s own Hi-Liners’ fall production of the family-friendly “Thoroughly Modern Millie” wraps up this weekend (Saturday, Sept. 26 at 7:30pm and Sunday, Sept. 27 at 1:30pm) at the Highline Performing Arts Center, and we’d like to encourage all our Readers who haven’t been to go see it.
Not just to support the Hi-Liners, a great non-profit that helps kids channel their passions into pure talent (which you’ll definitely see on display, as this show is professionally produced and is hilarious!), but also because the Hi-Liners need your help.
If you don’t believe our endorsement, here are some others:
â€œThe kids were absolutely AMAZING and I canâ€™t wait to see it again next weekend!â€, said one audience member.
â€œI laughed so hard that I nearly fell out of my seat!â€ said another.
â€œIt was the most professional student production Iâ€™ve ever seen!â€ raved another audience member.
But donâ€™t just rely on what you hearâ€¦go see the show and experience it first hand on its closing weekend â€“ good seats are still available â€“ to purchase a ticket, please visit their website at www.hi-liners.org or by calling 206-617-2152
Kathleen Edwards, our Artistic Director, has said it very well:
â€œWe are not in existence to create professional actors and actresses. The Hi-Liners exist to help produce quality people who become assets to our community and our society in general.â€
So far over 4,500 young people have experienced our program since 1994 and I am proud of each one. If our program sounds like a worthwhile addition to our community and you have enjoyed our shows, I hope you will take the time now to insure that we are doing this next year and for many years to come.
The Hi-Liners is a 501 (C) 3 Corporation and all donations are tax deductible. If you would like to make a donation to the Hi-Liners organization, please visit our website at www.hi-liners.org/support.
Thank You so much for your support and I hope to see you at the show!

We saw the show last weekend, and we were thoroughly impressed by the acting (especially Alexzandra Gorski as Millie, Kate Moyer as Mrs. Meers, Max Seifert as Mr. Graydon and Taylor Moury as Miss Flannery), the outstanding dancing/choreography, music (there’s a live orchestra in the pit), singing, and of course the hilarious script which includes some knock-out numbers done by local youths.
You should know that we saw this the day after returning from Vegas, where we saw some shows (including Cheap Trick doing Sgt. Peppers!), and we gotta say, this Hi-Liners production rivaled what we saw there.
That my friends is a thorough endorsement from The B-Town Blog, not only of our own Hi-Liners, but of the entire cast as well as Director Kathleen Edwards, Music Director Mara Ostrand, Choreographer Taryn Darr and every single other person involved!
Buy your tickets online, right now, right here (or by calling 206-617-2152) and support local arts and local youth!
