Young women struggle to find their way in New York City . . .
They deal with sweatshops, speakeasies and prohibition of the 1920s. Along the way, they spend a night in jail, get a taste of New York’s high society and foil a conniving hotel owner’s attempts to sell them into “white slavery.”
Of course, there are plenty of laughs along the way in “Thoroughly Modern Millie.”
A Boone Central cast of 32 students, crew of 22 and orchestra of 10 teachers, adult volunteers and students presented the well-known Broadway musical by Richard Morris last Saturday evening and Sunday afternoon in the school gym.
More than 250 people attended each performance.
The annual musical was directed by Dawn Bussey and Cassie Olson, with assistance from many volunteers.
