Thoroughly Modern Millie UK Tour

STOP PRESS - The Thoroughly Modern Millie Tour has been cancelled

Based on the 1967 Academy Award-winning film, the Thoroughly Modern Millie UK Tour starts up again in March 2018 at the Richmond Theatre.

It’s the roaring 20’s, Millie Dillmount from Kansas, steps off the train into a New York city filled with speakeasies, frivolous flappers and the pulsating sounds of syncopated jazz. America has thrown off its inhibitions and anything goes! Millie’s ‘modern’ plan is to work in a typing pool and marry the wealthy boss. But then she meets and falls in love with Jimmy, a man without a dime to his name... or so she thinks.

This delightful production follows a hugely successful tour in spring 2017 and in its new run will star actress Hayley Tamaddon. Hayley will take on the title role of Millie Dilmount, a young Kansas girl with a dream of making it big in New York City. Hayley is best known for her portrayal of Del Dingle in Emmerdale and Andrea Beckett in Coronation Street and as well as this was the winner of the fifth series of ITV’s Dancing on Ice. She has also crafted a successful musical theatre career with roles including, Roxie Hart in Chicago (UK Tour), The Lady of the Lake in Spamalot (UK tour), Janet in The Rocky Horror Show (UK Tour), Frenchie in Grease (UK Tour), Diana Morales in A Chorus Line (Sheffield Theatres), Trish in Boogie Nights (UK Tour), Carmen in Fame (UK Tour), Laura in Boyband (West End) and Lisa in Mamma Mia (West End). From explosive tap routines to a ‘Fred and Ginger’ routine on a window ledge Thoroughly Modern Millie is a perfectly constructed evening of madcap merriment for all the family. The winner of six Tony Awards including Best Musical, Thoroughly Modern Millie was the 2002 season's most awarded new show on Broadway!

Thoroughly Modern Millie has a book by original screenwriter Richard Morris and Dick Scanlan, new music by Jeanine Tesori, and new lyrics by Dick Scanlan.
