|Herkimer High School presents classic musical
The Herkimer High School Footlighters will present the Tony Award winning 2002 Broadway musical production at 7:30 p.m., Thursday through Saturday, March 12, 13 and 14, 2009, in the Herkimer High School auditorium.
The musical is based upon the 1967 musical film, starring Julie Andrews and written by Richard Morris, with music by Jeanine Tesori and lyrics by Dick Scanlan.
This year’s production is directed by John Krause and choreographed by Mamie Bowdish.
The story finds young Millie Dillmount moving to the heart of New York City in search of a new life for herself during the wild Roaring Twenties. A thoroughly modern concept for women in 1922, the story tells of her madcap adventures in a city filled intrigue and jazz. It is a time when women were just beginning to enter the workforce and the rules of love and social behavior were changing forever.
