The McKinney Youth Theatre (MYT) will perform the play Thoroughly Modern Millie Jr. on Thursday through Sunday, Sept. 3-6, at the McKinney Performing Arts Center.

It's 1922 and Millie Dillmount has arrived in New York City from Salina, Kan. She is scared and excited to be there. Surrounded by "moderns," Millie is a fish out of water. Determined to make it, she raises her skirt, bobs her hair and joins the "thoroughly modern" crowd of New York.

The talented cast from MYT will sing, dance and tap their way through the roaring 20s and into your hearts. The show is appropriate for all ages and is scheduled for two hours.
