FDSH?announces 2013 spring musical

The Fort Dodge Senior High Fine Arts Department announces “Thoroughly Modern Millie,” presented by special arrangement of Music Theater International, as its 86th annual musical.

Auditions will be held March 4-7.

“Thoroughly Modern Millie” takes place in New York City in 1922, telling the story of young Millie Dillmount, who has just moved to the city in search of a new life for herself. It’s a New York full of intrigue and jazz, a time when women were entering the workforce and the rules of love and social behavior were changing forever.

Filled with frisky flappers, dashing leading men and a dragon-lady of a villainess audiences will love to hate, “Thoroughly Modern Millie” is a perfectly constructed evening of madcap merriment including a full score of new songs and bright dance numbers.

Shows will be May 16-18 at 7 p.m., at Iowa Central Community College’s Decker Auditorium.
