Regional Youth Theatre is performing Thoroughly Modern Millie, the winner of six

was an honor to be asked to direct Thoroughly Modern Millie. A show of this
caliber requires a cast with maturity, vocal, dance and theatrical
experience,” says Doug Wozny, the show’s Director. “From day one of
auditions, I knew we had such a cast. At every rehearsal, I am humbled by their
dedication and skills. Their studies go far beyond the time we have together as
a team. I have watched them grow through the scenes, developing movements,
emotions and characters that are far beyond their familiarity and years. I have
never been more excited to open a show. The audience is in for a wonderful
