“Thoroughly Modern Millie” will be the first fully-theatrical presentation by the E.E.C.T. in the new Performing Arts Center on Canal Road. The state-of-art 710-seat theater also serves as the performance venue for Orange Beach High School, as part of a cooperative agreement between the Baldwin County Public School System and the City of Orange Beach.
Jacob Morris realized theater directing was his real calling in his senior year of college. Morris is directing the Expect Excellence Community Theater’s presentation of “Thoroughly Modern Millie” in February.
“I am very excited about moving to the Performing Arts Center. It is a lot more seats to fill, but it’s also a more traditional type of space for the play. Millie is a high energy and big production kind of show, and I can’t imagine a better way to open the P.A.C., than with this play,” Morris said.
Morris believes “Thoroughly Modern Millie” appeals to a lot of different audiences. “There are amazing things and amazing moments people will see in this play, and I really encourage everyone to come see this show,” Morris said confidently.
“Thoroughly Modern Millie” will be performed Feb. 4 – 6 and 11 – 13. Friday and Saturday shows will be at 7 p.m. and Sunday’s show is at 2 p.m. Tickets cost $15 and seats may be chosen on the ticketing site at orangebeachal.gov/events/performing-arts. The Orange Beach Performing Arts Center is located at 23908 Canal Road, Orange Beach, Ala. 36561, on the east side of the high school.
THOROUGHLY MODERN MILLIE is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI). All authorized performance materials are also supplied by MTI. mtishows.com
