Thoroughly Modern Millie

By Richard Morris, Dick Scanlan and Jeanine Tesori

New York,1922. Millie Dillmount arrives from Kansas in search of a new life. Her plan is to find a job as a secretary for a wealthy man and marry him. However, her plan goes completely awry. The owner of her dingy hotel kidnaps young girls to sell to the Far East, her wealthy boss is slow in proposing marriage and the man she actually falls in love with doesn’t have a dime to his name... or so he tells her.
Filled with frisky flappers, dashing leading men and a dragon lady of a villainess, Thoroughly Modern Millie is a perfectly constructed evening of madcap merriment.

The Reunion

20 - 23 March

Witham Dramatic Club

The Reunion

By Peter Gordon

It’s good to meet up with old friends . . . or perhaps not!
When Nigel arranges a reunion in the back room of a pub, he is optimistic of a good turnout. Whilst the numbers disappoint him, he soon has his hands full when a motley middle-aged threesome turn up, bringing with them assorted wives, girlfriends, prejudices, and resentments that have simmered for the last twenty-five years. Comedy and confusion combine in this hilarious but poignant story of ‘small people’ in a ‘big world’.
