Set in New York City in 1922, Thoroughly Modern Millie tells the story of young Millie Dillmount from Kansas, who comes to New York in search of a new life for herself. Her grand plan is to find a job as a secretary for a wealthy man and then 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 that audiences will love to hate, Thoroughly Modern Millie is a perfectly constructed evening of madcap merriment.
One parent (or adult family representative) of each camper is required to volunteer as part of a Parent Production Team.
We will hold auditions for those who would like an opportunity for a role, solo, or featured dancer; however, you do NOT need to audition in order to participate in this camp. Auditions will be held on June 1 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., and callbacks will be held on June 2 from 1 to 7 p.m. Both will occur at the CYT Studios (6800 W. 153rd St. Suite A). Students who choose not to audition will be placed in the ensemble.
Those who wish to audition must prepare a one-minute song, be prepared for a short dance audition, and perform a memorized monologue, which is posted on the High School Camp page of the CYT KC website. Students MUST provide sheet music to be played by our accompanist. Students should wear jazz shoes and comfortable/modest clothing for their dance audition.
Video Submissions: In person auditions are strongly encouraged for the benefit of both you and our directing teams, however, we understand families sometimes have conflicts with our audition dates. If you would like to submit a video audition, you may film a video of your student singing 60 seconds or less of a song of their choice, performing one of the provided monologues (posted on the High School Camp page by early April), and dancing 60 seconds or less of a choreographed routine. The dance routine should include at least one turn and a demonstration of your flexibility (i.e. kicks or splits). If you tap, you should also film a brief demonstration of your tap skills. The audition video should be emailed to email@example.com no later than June 1 by 12:00 noon.
If is auditioning, at least 1 guardian must sign up for a Production Team. Please select your preferred choice, however your Production Team is subject to change. You can find more information on Production Teams here.
