It's been four years since the Palmyra Players were rebooted. Last year the group performed The Music Man the first full musical at Palmyra High School in many years. In 2017 the group stepped up to an even more intensive production. Thoroughly Modern Millie includes strong elements of Tap, intricate costume needs, and many set pieces.
Welcome To A World
A penniless drifter and eventual love interest for Millie. But who is he really?
A young woman from Kansas who believes she knows what she wants out of life and won't let anything get in her way. Of course, everything gets in her way.
A young woman of wealth who wants to know of "the other half" lives. Millie is all too happy to show her, and the two become friends.
Both Jimmy and Millie are idealists, of sorts. It makes the possibility of a future for the pair a bit of a stretch.
Millie and Jimmy's story is the main arc of the show.
Trevor Graydon III
A wealthy business man and focal point of Millie's plans for the future.
You know he's rich because he plays golf.
Graydon's assistant, who is unimpressed by "moderns." She becomes Millie's friend in the end.
The villain, Mrs. Meers, is actually involved in... human trafficking?? This is a wonderfully odd show.
