Hammond High School is excited to announce the upcoming production of the TONY Award-winning Best Musical, Thoroughly Modern Millie performing March 6, 7, and 8th at 7pm and March 8th at 2pm. Combining the talents of over 100 students on stage, in the pit band, and behind-the-scenes, this show is sure to delight audiences of all ages.
Follow small-town girl, Millie Dillmount, as she arrives in New York City in 1922 at the height of the jazz age. She’s hoping to find herself, adventure, and love in a city filled with frisky flappers, debonair leading men, and a delectably diabolic landlord.
With a soundtrack of catchy jazz tunes, rousing tap numbers, and sweet solos, your toes will be tapping as you laugh your way through Millie’s unforgettable journey.
