When small town girl Millie Dillmount moves to New York City to marry for money rather than for love, things are bound to go awry. This comic pastiche musical, which evokes the flapper era of the 1920s, takes you back to the Jazz Age when women were entering the workforce and rewriting the rules of love. Filled with villains, tap dance numbers, romance and a full professional pit orchestra, six time Tony Award winner Thoroughly Modern Millie has everything you love about musical theatre.

“…thoroughly delightful…” New York Times

After an apocalyptic event, survivors comfort themselves by recalling the plot of an episode of The Simpsons from memory. Seven years later, the story has become live entertainment, complete with commercials and pop songs. Finally, 75 years later, the story is a legend that inspires new forms of theatrical performance. This imaginative dark comedy brilliantly explores how the pop culture of our era could evolve into the mythology of another and points out the the importance of story. When everything is gone, what remains is our ability to remember and share stories.

“What [happens] to a pop culture narrative pushed past the fall of civilization?” Anne Washburn

“…hypnotic, sly and fiendishly insinuating…” Time Out New York

We all have those pop songs we love behind closed doors when no one is looking.  This year, we take our cabaret series off campus to revel in the best (and worst) of pop music. Join us for a Cinco de Mayo celebration on the patio (weather permitting) at Charlie Dwellington’s (1st and Main). Our students will shine with music by the likes of Lady Gaga, Elton John and many, many more. This event begins with a cocktail hour at 6:30, then stick around after the cabaret for a night of karaoke!
