Carmel Valley resident in Coronado School of the Arts’ production of Thoroughly Modern Millie

Carmel Valley resident Mitch Connelly, left, will perform in Coronado School of the Arts’ production of Thoroughly Modern Millie.

Coronado School of the Arts (CoSA) will present Thoroughly Modern Millie April 27 – May 5 at the Coronado Performing Arts Center (located at 650 D Avenue, Coronado, Calif., 92118). Showtimes are 7 p.m. on April 27-28  and May 4-5 and 2 p.m. on April 29.

Film buffs may recall the 1967 movie version of Thoroughly Modern Millie, which starred Julie Andrews and Carol Channing. It was turned into a musical in the late 1990s, and the production debuted at La Jolla Playhouse in 2000 before moving to Broadway in 2002. With electric energy and laugh-out-loud humor, the stage version of Thoroughly Modern Millie was such a hit on Broadway that it won six Tony Awards, including Best Musical. With two elaborate tap numbers and several jazz-themed dances, the 29 students involved in the production have to be fleet-footed and high-energy, which is a challenge they eagerly accept.

“We’ve all really learned how to sustain our energy in this show,” says Carmel Valley resident Mitch Connelly, who takes on a couple of roles – including George Gershwin – as a member of the ensemble. “The dance numbers are incredible, and the songs are catchy and fun.” Connelly joins a large cast of students from all over San Diego County. Tickets to Thoroughly Modern Millie are available for purchase online at Prices range from $6 to $16 depending on age. All seating is general admission. Tickets will also be available for purchase at the door 45 minutes prior to showtime. Call 619-522-4050 x5 with questions.
