The Woodland Opera House will present “Thoroughly Modern Millie” opening Friday, May 2, and running at 7:30 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays and 2 p.m. Sundays through May 25. There will be an additional matinee at 2 p.m. Saturday, May 17.

Not only is “Thoroughly Modern Millie” a zany romantic spoof of the Roaring ’20s, it won an Oscar for Best Original Music Score for the motion picture starring Julie Andrews, and the Tony Award for Best Musical for the stage version.

Taking place in New York City in 1922, “Thoroughly Modern Millie” tells the story of young Millie Dillmount (Amy Jacques-Jones) an innocent country girl who comes to the big city in search of a husband. Along the way she becomes the secretary of the rich and famous Trevor Graydon (Horacio Gonzales), befriends the sweet Miss Dorothy (Petra Favorite), fights off a dragon-lady audiences will love to hate (Eva Sarry), and hooks up with a lively paper clip salesman, Jimmy (Seth Rogers). In the end it takes a rich nutty “jazz baby” like Muzzy (Deborah Hammond) to unravel all these complications, give a great party and match up lovers. Filled with frisky flappers, tap dancing secretaries, dashing leading men, and an upbeat score, “Thoroughly Modern Millie” provides mad-cap merriment for the whole family.

The show is underwritten by Tony and Trish Marshall. The show is directed and choreographed by Staci Arriags, with music direction by James Glica-Hernandez.

Tickets are available at 530-666-9617 or www.woodlandoperahouse.org.
