Annie Aitken
A small town girl ready to make her dreams come true

It's the height of the jazz age in the roaring 20s and small town girl Millie Dillmount has just arrived in New York City ready to make her dreams come true. Millie's plan is simple - find a job as a secretary for an eligible bachelor and then marry him. 

It doesn't take long for Millie's thoroughly modern plan to go awry. Annie Aitken is featured in the starring role of Millie. 

Australia's favourite leading lady, Marina Prior, is conniving landlady - and part time slave trader - Mrs Meers. She is  a dragon lady audiences will love to hate.

Michael Falzon is Millie's boss (and dream husband), Trevor Graydon. Clair Lyon is her best friend and aspiring actress, Miss Dorothy Brown.

The winner of 6 Tony Awards including Best Musical, Thoroughly Modern Millie is based on the 1967 Academy Award winning film and was Broadway's most awarded new show in 2002. Songs include 'Not For The Life Of Me', 'Thoroughly Modern Millie', 'Forget About The Boy', and 'Gimme Gimme'.

Director Chris Parker returns with maestro Peter Casey conducting The Production Company Orchestra. Renowned tap king Christopher Horsey is choreographer with costumes by Isaac Lummis, set by Christina Smith, and lighting by Gavin Swift.

Thoroughly Modern Millie is based on the original story and screen play by Richard Morris and the Broadway musical was created by Richard Morris and Dick Scanlan wth new music by Jeanine Tesori
