Thoroughly Modern Millie Jr. in Maple Ridge

Showstoppers Academy puts on a musical at the ACT about a small town girl who moves to the city in search of a new life

Taylor Mills and Josh Vincent in Thoroughly Modern Millie which plays the ACT this week.

A cast of 40 brings New York City to the ACT with the musical Thoroughly Modern Millie.

This Showstoppers Academy production is a  fun, zany, high energy, madcap romp through the roaring 1920.

Thoroughly Modern Millie tells the story of a young small-town girl, Millie Dillmount, who has just moved to the big city in search of a new life for herself.

It’s a New York full of intrigue and jazz –  a time when women were entering into the workforce and the rules of social behavior were changing forever.

Based on the popular movie, the stage version includes a full score of new songs and bright dance numbers and features a cast aged 12 to 21.

Thoroughly Modern Millie plays the ACT in May 10 to 12 at 12:30  p.m. and 7 p.m. Matinees on Thursday May 10 and May 11 costs $7. To order you tickets, call  604-476-2787.
