GET YOUR TICKETS FOR THOROUGHLY MODERN MILLIE!

 

The winner of six Tony Awards, including Best Musical, Thoroughly Modern Millie was the 2002 season's most awarded new show on Broadway! Based on the 1967 Academy Award-winning film, Thoroughly Modern Millie takes you back to the height of the Jazz Age in New York City, when "moderns," including a flapper named Millie Dillmount, were bobbing their hair, raising their hemlines, entering the workforce and rewriting the rules of love. This high-spirited musical romp is a delightful valentine to the long-standing spirit of New York City and the people who seek to discover themselves there.

Set in New York City in 1922, Thoroughly Modern Millie tells the story of young Millie Dillmount from Kansas, who comes to New York in search of a new life for herself. Her grand plan is to find a job as a secretary for a wealthy man and then marry him. However, her plan goes completely awry. The owner of her dingy hotel kidnaps young girls to sell to the Far East, her wealthy boss is slow in proposing marriage and the man she actually falls in love with doesn't have a dime to his name... or so he tells her.

Filled with frisky flappers, dashing leading men and a dragon lady of a villainess that audiences will love to hate, Thoroughly Modern Millie is a perfectly constructed evening of madcap merriment. From explosive tap numbers to a "Fred and Ginger" routine on a window ledge, this is the perfect show for theatres that are looking to show off the dance skills of their performers. In Millie Dillmount, musical theatre has found a new heroine for the ages in Thoroughly Modern Millie!

Greater Tuna Auditions

TLT AUDITIONS SET

FOR “GREATER TUNA”

                             

     The outrageously funny two-man comedy “Greater Tuna” will open the Tryon Little Theater’s 2017-2018 season, and director Carol Cox has announced auditions for Sunday, July 30 at 3 p.m. and Monday the 31st at 6:30 p.m.  Performances will be at the Workshop September 14-24.

     Two actors in ten roles apiece -- playing men, women, children . . . even Yippy the dog.  Meet Thurston Wheelis and Arles Struvie, who broadcast the local news of Tuna, Texas on radio station OKKK.  There’s Didi Snavely, owner of Didi’s Used Weapons (motto: “If Didi’s can’t kill it, it’s immortal”).   There’s the Bumiller clan – Bertha, Hank, and siblings Jody and Stanley.  There’s gossip Pearl Burras, Sheriff Givens, Reverend Spike, Petey Fisk, and several other residents of Tuna, whose population is somewhere south of 300 souls.

     “Greater Tuna” premiered in 1981, a play about Texas’ third smallest town, where the Lion’s Club is too liberal and Patsy Cline never dies -- a town full of eccentric characters, largely with small minds.  “Tuna” was once the most performed play in America, and even did a command performance at the White House.

     Part of the fun for the audience is never knowing which character an actor will appear as next, just moments after exiting the stage as someone else.  Lightning fast costume changes, including wigs, hats, whatever.  Accents flip from one to another as the two actors constantly switch from the likes of an old school harpy to a dog-loving teen to a reverend who spouts every cliché known to mankind to raucous Didi to a rebellious young man to the local sheriff, and on and on.

     Auditions will be held at TLT’s Workshop, 516 South Trade Street.  For further information, contact producer Betty Brewer at 828-817-3843.
