For the last two years the incredible talent of the Kempner High School Drama Department has been recognized and selected to participate in the prestigious Tommy Tune Awards. This year on October 5 through October 8 they will be performing the musical production of “Thoroughly Modern Millie”.
Taking place in New York City in 1922, “Thoroughly Modern Millie” tells the story of young Millie Dillmount, who has just moved to the city in search of a new life for herself. It’s a New York full of intrigue and jazz – a time when women were entering the workforce and the rules of love and social behavior were changing forever. Filled with frisky flappers, dashing leading men and a dragon-lady of a villainess audiences will love to hate, “Thoroughly Modern Millie”is a perfectly constructed evening of madcap merriment
The performance will be at the Kempner High School Main Stage. October 5 – Oct. 8, at 7:00 PM. Pre sale tickets will be available during all school lunches from 11:00am until 1:00pm from September 28 – October 7. Pre sale prices are $6 for students and adults – $8. At door prices are $8 students and $10 adults.
Come out and cheer these fine young thespians as they sing and dance their way again to the Tommy Tune Awards.
