Following a hugely successful tour in Spring 2017, award-winning musical Thoroughly Modern Millie is set to tour the UK again in 2018 with a date at Sunderland Empire, Tuesday 10th - Saturday 14th April 2018 with actress Hayley Tamaddon taking on the title role of Millie Dilmount, a Kansas girl determined to make it big in New York City.
Hayley Tamaddon is perhaps best known for her portrayal of Del Dingle in Emmerdale and Andrea Beckett in
and for winning the fifth series of ITV1’s Dancing
on Ice. Other television credits include Accused, Shameless, Waterloo Road,
Where the Heart Is and The Royal. Her musical theatre roles
include Roxie Hart in Chicago (UK

in The Rocky Horror Show (UK Tour),
Frenchie in Grease (UK Tour), Diana
Morales in A Chorus Line (Sheffield

Laura in Boyband (West End) and Lisa
in Mamma Mia (West End). She has also
starred in the
tour of The Vagina Monologues and in
John Godber’s play Muddy Cows
(Stephen Joseph, UK Scarborough).
Winner of six Tony Awards including Best Musical, Thoroughly Modern Millie is based on the 1967 Academy Award-winning film. Taking you back to the height of the Jazz Age in 1920s New York City, when ‘moderns’ including a flapper named Millie Dillmount, were bobbing their hair, raising their hemlines, entering the workforce and rewriting the rules of love.
From explosive tap numbers to a ‘Fred and Ginger’ dance routine on a window ledge, and featuring hit songs including Gimme Gimme and Not for the Life of Me, Thoroughly Modern Millie is a brilliantly funny and entertaining show for all the family.
Tickets for Thoroughly Modern Millie are on public sale. Further casting to be announced.
