South Tahoe High production of ‘Thoroughly Modern Millie’ takes stage this weekend

South Tahoe High School's production of "Thoroughly Modern Millie" will take the stage this weekend, Jan. 26 – 28, for four performances.

Earlier scheduled shows were canceled due to many cast members coming down with the flu. With those involved recovering, the play is scheduled for four showings: 7 p.m. Friday; 2 and 7 p.m. Saturday; and 2 p.m. Sunday.

The play, which premiered on Broadway in 2002 and won six Tony Awards, is based on the 1967 film of the same name. The story is set in 1922 when a young woman travels to New York City from Kansas in search of a new life and love. However, things do not go as planned.

"'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," reads a poster for the performance. "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."

The performance will take place in the South Tahoe High School T.A.D.A. Theater. Tickets are $15 for adults and $10 for students. A Super ASB card is good for one free admission. Tickets can be purchased here.

Doors open 30 minutes prior to show time.
