FHS presents Thoroughly Modern Millie

The Fayetteville High School drama department will be presenting Thoroughly Modern Millie written by Richard Morris and Dick Scanlan, with music and lyrics by Jeanine Tesori and Dick Scanlan as it’s spring musical.

The musical centers around Millie Dilmount, a small town girl who moves into the big city to marry for money, a thoroughly “modern” idea for 1920’s America, rather than love. Problems arise, however, when she checks into a hotel run by the leader of a Chinese slave ring and meets a young man Millie cannot resist.

The show is being directed by drama teacher Warren Rosenaur and choir director Dawnelle Fincher. The show features an orchestra lead by band director Barry Harper, choreography by Lydia Seifritz, lighting design by Julie Gable, costumes by Faye Alter and piano accompaniment by LeAnn Girshner.

The cast of student actors includes Cassie Lime, Nick Keller, Morgan Vesper, Kendal Ureckis, Tommye Jones, Emily McComas, Shelby Armstrong, Allie Rohrbach, Michelle Leatherby, Emily Beaver, Chris Jordan, Hyrum Richardson, Stephanie Rupe, Karina Hunt, Meredith Sokora, Grace Colly, Marya Mckee, Ashley Cunningham, Brianna Polach, Lauren Sherman, Audrey Thorn, Jasmine Franklin, Katherine Kroening, Cyrenthia McLennan, Austin Ross, Daniel Greer, Miranda Tims, Zach Stolz, Cody Nielson, Aricka Lewis, Christina Sagan, Charles Robinson, and Alyssa Tapper. The student assistan stage managers are Tara Tuttle and Erynn Lasse.
