The Biz to perform ‘Thoroughly Modern Millie Jr.’

She's a spunky kid who's moved to New York from Salina, Kan. She's ready to join the modern women of the 1920s, raise her skirts, bob her hair, marry her boss, and have a stable future. But then, there's Jimmy ...

The Biz Academy of Musical Theater presents its youth production of “Thoroughly Modern Millie Jr.,” with performances 7:30 p.m. May 16-18 and 24-25 and 2:30 p.m. May 19 at Harmony Baptist Church, 5697 Broyles Road, Avon.  General admission tickets will be available at the door and are $10 for youth ages 6 to 18 and $12 for adults.

The zany plot revolves around Millie Dillmount (Renee Maynard), who escapes to New York City from Salina, Kan., determined to marry her wealthy boss — whoever he may be. Shedding her country girl image for the modern look of a flapper, she takes a room at the Priscilla Hotel for Women and gets a job as a stenographer at the Sincere Trust Insurance Company.

In short time, she finds herself involved with Jimmy Smith (Adam Decker), an apparently unsuccessful paper clip salesman; Miss Dorothy Brown (Claire Trinkle), a genteel aspiring actress who is excited to be poor; and Trevor Graydon (Jaden Miller), the unromantic boss Millie wants to marry.  As well there’s the hotel proprietress, Mrs. Meers (Abby Moyers), a villainess everyone loves to hate, and her assistants Ching Ho (Kameron Stevens) and Bun Foo (Travis Johnson) whom she forces to carry out her diabolical schemes.

Rounding out the cast are Jill Koval as Miss Flannery; Olivia Ash as Ethel Peas; the Hotel  Priscilla girls played by Emily Keith, Julle Comer, Abby Evans, Isabelle Hackett, Maggie Hine, and Kristen Petersen; and  ensemble members Mazzy Booth, Erica Wycoff, Alivia Sloan, Megan Decker, Rosie Albright, Brittney Shepard, Samantha Koval, Megan Melton, Anna Rowe, Maria Mark, Alexys Negron, Macy Lyon, Kaleb Stevens, Abraham Rittenhouse, Jim Melton, and Noah Sigler.
