“Sister Act” is the story of discodiva, Deloris Van Cartier, who witnesses a murder, and is put in protective custody in the one place the cops are sure she won't be a found: a convent. Disguised as a nun, she finds herself at odds with both the rigid lifestyle and uptight Mother Superior. The musical written by Bill and Cheri Steinkellner with additional book material by Douglas Carter Beane, with lyrics by Glenn Slater and music by Alan Menken. It is based on the hit 1992 film comedy of the same name.

Poolesville’s Midnight Players, the theatre club at Poolesville High School, will present “Thoroughly Modern Millie” to be performed March 30, 31 and April 1, 2017.

Millie Dillmount is just your average 1920’s girl who’s ready to take life by the horns and has just arrived in New York City, ready to make her dreams come true. It doesn’t take long, however, for Millie’s adventure to get turned upside down. Her conniving landlady plots to kidnap her best friend, her wealthy boss seems entirely uninterested in her flirtations, and —worst of all — the man with whom she falls head over heels in love doesn’t have a penny to his name.

“Thoroughly Modern Millie” will be presented in the Poolesville High School Auditorium for four performances, Thursday, March 30 at 7:00 pm; Friday, March 31 at 7:00 pm, and Saturday, April 1 at 2:00 pm and 7:00 pm. Tickets can purchased at the door or in advance at the
