Anthem, Ariz.  August 13, 2012 – Musical Theatre of Anthem (MTA) announces performances for the upcoming high-spirited, tapping, musical romp, Thoroughly Modern Millie Jr., September 27 – October 7 in Anthem. Thoroughly Modern Millie Jr. is the zany new 1920’s musical that has taken Broadway by storm.

Presented by a cast of 18, ages 13-19, the show is directed and vocal directed by Shawna Weitekamp, and choreographed by Amanda Paige, both multi-ariZoni winners.  Sarah Brayer is the production assistant.  

“This show reminds us that New York is, and has always been, the place you go to make your dreams come true,” said Weitekamp. “Millie’s journey to find herself and hit it big in the big city is one that will be familiar to many of our audience members, and it is one shared by many of the cast working on the show. The audience is in for a real treat with some very funny characters, a love story, and great toe tapping numbers.”
