Broadway Juniors to Perform
Thoroughly Modern Millie

April 21, 2015 - You’ve seen our high school students’ fantastic presentation of Shrek, but did you know there is another production in the works on Pleasant Avenue?

A group of budding, talented elementary students and their dedicated mentors and parents are rehearsing and working hard to bring you another spectacular show in June…Thoroughly Modern Millie!  Two shows will be held in the elementary school auditorium on Thursday, June 4 and Friday June, 5 at 7:00 p.m.

Work on these productions begins in the fall when an information meeting is held for parents.  Work on the show begins in earnest after the holiday break with the distribution of lyrics and cast lists so students can begin practicing for auditions.  Depending on the show and the story line, students’ outside interests such as dance, martial arts or gymnastics can be helpful.  All students can participate! 

While the students are busy learning lyrics and scripts, and attending practices each week, there are lots of behind-the-scenes preparations underway as well.  Sound, lighting and technical coordination is being choreographed.  Planning for ticket and t-shirt sales (Thoughly Modern Millie T-Shirt Order), program design and advertising is in progress.  Sets need to be constructed, props and costumes need to be made, purchased or gathered…and this is just the short list! 

Numerous committees of parents, teachers, staff and other community volunteers, as well as students, are diligently planning and working to bring this production to fruition.  One of those support activities includes fundraising.  The proceeds from these fundraising efforts benefit Broadway Juniors and are used to defray the cost of staging such a professionally done student production.

Our inaugural Valentine Carnation Sale was a huge success and we were thrilled to see so many smiling faces enjoying frozen yogurt at our 16 Handles fundraiser!  Several other fundraisers are planned for the months ahead, including a bake sale at Shop ‘n Save on Saturday, April 25th. 

Broadway Juniors is very grateful for the generous support from the school community for this theatrical program!

Don’t forget to mark your calendar…
Thoroughly Modern Millie is not to be missed!
