‘Thoroughly Modern Millie’, Kelsey Theatre

Sunday August 5, 2018
2:00 PM

Everything is thoroughly modern at Mercer County Community College’s (MCCC’s) Kelsey Theatre as M&M Stage Productions presents “Thoroughly Modern Millie.” Kelsey Theatre is located on MCCC’s West Windsor Campus, 1200 Old Trenton Road. 

Millie Dillmount has just arrived in New York City direct from Kansas and ready to make her mark. It’s 1922, the height of the Jazz Age, and girls are bobbing their hair, raising their hemlines, entering the workforce, and reinventing the rules of romance. Determined to marry a wealthy businessman, Millie finds herself attracted instead to the penniless Jimmy Smith. Meanwhile, Mrs. Meers, the landlady at Millie’s dingy hotel for women, has a get-rich scheme of her own and it doesn’t bode well for the girls in her stead. Based on the 1967 Academy Award-winning film, this spirited musical was the winner of six Tony Awards, including Best Musical, in 2002. With high-energy dance numbers and a vibrant musical score, “Millie” adds up to merry, madcap entertainment.

Tickets are $20 for adults; $18 for seniors; and $16 for students/children. Tickets may be purchased online at www.KelseyTheatre.net or by calling the Kelsey Box Office at 609-570-3333. Kelsey Theatre is wheelchair accessible, with free parking next to the theater. For a list of upcoming events, visit the Kelsey website or call the box office.
