What does it take for a girl to be modern in 1922 New York? The answer is simple, become a flapper, and, star in a great show at Grand Rapids Civic Theatre.

Straight off the bus from Kansas, Millie Dillmount is searching for a new life and the draw of all things modern: bobbed hair, short hemlines, jazz music, and women entering the workforce. She is ready for a modern life but is this new life and a quest for love ready for her? We'll all find out when "Thoroughly Modern Millie" opens at Civic next Friday for a 2-week run.
