Westport Drama Club goes back in time to 'Modern Millie'

WESTPORT-The Westport Central School Drama Club will get modern with their 2011 performance.

"Thoroughly Modern Millie," which will be performed on Friday, April 29, and Saturday, April 30, in the WCSauditorium, is actually set in the 1920s.

"Practice has gone really well," director Jim Carroll said. "They have worked hard and there are a lot of talented students in the production."

There will be a 7 p.m. performance on both Friday and Saturday night, while there will also be a 2 p.m. performance on Saturday.

Along with Carroll, the members of the drama club received music direction from Alan Ware.

"It's great to see a graduate of the school and former member of the club come back and help out the students," Carroll said.

Jacqueline Robertin and Gigi Carroll worked with students on choreography.

The production is the first that Jim Carroll has directed.

"It has been a challenge to fit everything in, but we have been able to work around all of the other extracurriculars and get things together," Carroll said.

Carroll also added that he was pleased to see several new members of the drama club prepare for their first production.

"We have a lot of new kids, and it is great to see the program grow," he said.

Tickets for the show are $8 for adults and $5 for students and seniors, with a $25 family max.
