Set in Manhattan circa 1922, Millie is the story of a small-town girl who sets out to chase her larger than life dreams. In her efforts to be the most modern of women, she comes across a slew of eccentric, yet lovable, characters. As she makes her way through New York City, Millie must decide if the prospect of an emerald-clad life is indeed more valuable than a green-glass love. The Roxy Theatre Group’s young ensemble and orchestra bring forth a musical extravaganza, complete with high-speed tap choreography that will have you saying Gimme, Gimme more! The music and lyrics for Millie are by Jeanine Tesori and Dick Scanlan, and the book written by Dick Scanlan and Richard Morris.
