Thoroughly Modern Millie

Last night Roosevelt High School opened its annual musical, this year’s offering being Thoroughly Modern Millie.   A stellar cast provided a great two-and-a-half-hour show, with Sarah Schenkkan as Millie Dillmount and Daniel Berryman as Jimmy Smith.  As you can imagine, I’m pretty proud of Daniel’s work in the play.  His acting has come a long way, and the voice and the dance continue to grow and astonish.   A friend who was watching Daniel for the first time wondered at intermission which was stronger–Daniel’s dancing or singing.  Needless to say, I’m proud of him.  Its hard not be obnoxious when talking about my kids, so I’ll just leave it at that and say if you get the chance, this is a production worth seeing.  It runs tonight at 7:30, then next weekend (Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and a Sunday Matinee) at Roosevelt High School’s new theatre.
