THOROUGHLY MODERN MILLIE
March 6 - March 28, 2020
Matinees March 14 & 21
An instant classic, Thoroughly Modern Millie, is a story that is both old and new. Set against the glittering backdrop of 1920’s New York the themes of greed, pride and a yearning for more are as old as the human condition. Yet hope, love and a fresh start are forever new. In this vibrant, funny musical Millie, Jimmy, Miss Dorothy and the sinister Mrs Meers are caught between the tensions of the old and new.
Will doubt and greed triumph as the mystery surrounding the disappearance of Millie’s roommate deepens or will true friendship and love work together to shine the light of truth on one of 1920 New York’s most dangerous secrets?

Matinee April 25
Set amongst the confining rigiors of Victorian Era proprietary Heritage Theater’s production of Charley’s Aunt is anything but stodgy. Jack and Charley have a hot double date planned. Refusing to be hampered by overbearing and nosy chaperone’s starry-eyed Jack and Charley contrive to have a chaperone of their choosing: Lord Fancourt Babblerly. Under normal circumstances his lordship would be a completely inappropriate choice were it not for one small detail. The obliging Lord Blabberly is to be disguised as Charley’s venerable Aunt.
The plan is getting along swimmingly well until Charley’s own dear, REAL Aunt arrives to check up on her mischievous nephew.
As in all good farces, hilarity with a dash of true love is the eventual outcome. Come laugh and evening away with us this spring.
