SHOW ANNOUNCEMENT: THOROUGHLY MODERN MILLIE
We are thrilled to announce that our summer 2019 show will be the well-loved classic: Thoroughly Modern Millie!
It's the 1922 and small-town girl, Millie Dilmount, escapes to New York City with a 'thoroughly modern' goal; to find a rich husband. The flapper lifestyle quickly enchants Millie, but problems arise when she checks into a hotel owed by the devious Mrs Meers.
Based on the 1967 film, starring Julie Andrews, Thoroughly Modern Millie first opened on Broadway in April 2002. The production was met with rapturous applause and critical acclaim, winning 6 Tony Awards, including Best Musical. Following its success Thoroughly Modern Millie proceeded to warm the hearts of audiences all over the globe, opening for the first time in the West End in 2003.
With a plethora of jazzy, catchy numbers – from Gimme Gimme to Not for the Life of Me – and a host of larger-than-life characters, Thoroughly Modern Millie promises to be an unforgettable evening at the theatre!
If you're aged 16-21 and have a love of theatre, whether on the stage, behind it or below it then please do get in touch with us - we can't wait to hear from you!

WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT!
RicNic, unlike many youth theatre companies, has no participation fees meaning that we rely heavily on donations for support. We believe that everyone from any background should have the opportunity to explore theatre, and what it is like to preform on a commercial stage! Your donation goes directly into the budget of the current show, and will most likely help to fund succeeding shows. Without support from donations and sponsors, we would be unable to give young people the unique experience RicNic has to offer.
