Thoroughly Modern Millie is an absolute delight. Not your usual mediocre community theatre. From the professional sets and costumes to the energetic dancing, this show steals your heart. Gabriel Grilli is stunning as Trevor Graydon, Millie's egotistical boss. The first act floats along with light laughs and evil interjections by Mrs. Meers (Ali Lane at her absolute best), but the show stopper comes along towards the end of Act I, where Muzzy makes her grand entrance. Cami Thompson is quite literally a show stopper. Her voice radiates throughout the whole theatre and gave everyone chills. The audience had begun to clap before she finished the last note. All and all the production is entertaining, well-cast, and worth going to. Go see it before time runs out!
