DIRECTOR'S NOTES

This is going to be one fun summer at Putnam County Playhouse and I can’t wait to get started with Thoroughly Modern Millie!

Whether you plan to audition for the show or enjoy it from the audience, Thoroughly Modern Millie is going to be a blast!   The ensemble cast will include many featured roles and several great leading roles.

Those auditioning for Thoroughly Modern Millie should have at least 16 bars of a prepared song ready to sing.   An accompanist will be provided for you, please bring your own sheet music.   You will also be asked to read from the script.

Thoroughly Modern Millie features several tap-dancing numbers and lots of dancing throughout.   Please bring appropriate dance shoes for the audition.   For those of you who aren’t tappers:   not all of the characters tap dance…so don’t let this keep you from auditioning if you are interested.  Our choreographer, Lita Sandy, is teaching a brush up/beginner’s tap class at Dance Workshop on Saturday mornings at 11 a.m. if you would like to hone your skills.

     

Thoroughly Modern Millie is one of my favorite new musicals and I hope that after this summer at PCPH, it’s one of your favorites too!
