(LAMBERTVILLE, NJ) -- Music Mountain Theatre revisits the wild and wooly Roaring 20s when Thoroughly Modern Millie comes to the stage for a four-weekend run opening on September 16th and running through October 9th.  Set in New York City in 1922, this tells the story of young Millie Dillmount from Kansas, who comes to New York in search of a new life for herself. Photographer John Posada was on hand to take photos.

Millie's grand plan is to find a job as a secretary for a wealthy man and then marry him. However, her plan goes completely awry. The owner of her dingy hotel kidnaps young girls to sell to the Far East, her wealthy boss is slow in proposing marriage and Jimmy, the man she actually falls in love with, doesn't have a dime to his name... or so he tells her.

Performances are Fridays and Saturdays at 8:00pm, Saturdays and Sundays at 3:00pm.  Tickets are $25 for adults, $23 for students or seniors and are available for purchase online or by calling the box office at 609-397-3337.

Based on the 1967 film of the same name, the musical originally opened on Broadway in 2002, where the production won six Tony Awards, including Best Musical, and introduced theatre-goers to Sutton Foster in the show’s title role. Reprising the role of Millie Dillmount from the Washington Crossing Production in 2014 is Jill Gibilisco. Shan Williams II plays opposite Gibilisco as Millie’s love interest, Jimmy.  Additional cast members include Jennifer Fischer, Lauren Brader, Erik Snyder, Siiyara Nelson, McAfee Madding, Jenn Hsiao and a 16 member ensemble of performers.

Heading the production team are Jordan Brennan and Louis Palena sharing directing and choreography duties, musical direction by Sue Den Outer, lighting design by Chris Cichon, and Morgan Tarrant designing sound.
