Reigate Dance School Announces First Musical Production
Ta Dah! We are extremely excited to announce that the Reigate School of Ballet & Commercial Dance are proud to stage their first full-scale Musical Production - dance, singing and drama opportunities galore!
Who can take part in the musical?
Main parts and cast are open to all RSB pupils aged 8 - 18 only. If you have ballet, tap, street, contemporary, modern or musical theatre classes at the Reigate School of Ballet / Reigate Dance Centre or Dorking School of Dance, then you are welcome to audition.
Thoroughly Modern Millie is a musical romp with many large scale numbers for dancers, and plenty of humorous and evil characters along the way. The main character is Millie Dillmount who arrives in New York searching for a new life. Her ultimate plan is to become a secretary for a wealthy man and hopefully marry him, but things don't quite work out. She shares a room with Dorothy whom she quickly becomes friends with, but the hotel is run by Miss Meers, a former actress-turned criminal. With fantastic flappers, dashing leading men and an evil Chinese underworld, set in the stylish 1920s New York, this musical is full of fun filled songs, dramatic situations and large-scale dance numbers that will entertain throughout.
