Check out which Soap Star will star in 2018 tour of THOROUGHLY MODERN MILLIE

Following a hugely successful tour in Spring 2017, award-winning musical Thoroughly Modern Millie is set to tour the UK again in 2018 opening at Richmond Theatre on Tuesday 27 March 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 Coronation Street 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 Tour), The Lady of the Lake in Spamalot (UK tour), Janet in The Rocky Horror Show (UK Tour), Frenchie in Grease (UK Tour), Diana Morales in A Chorus Line (Sheffield Theatres), Trish in Boogie Nights (UK Tour), Carmen in Fame (UK Tour), Laura in Boyband (West End) and Lisa in Mamma Mia (West End). She has also starred in the UK tour of The Vagina Monologues and in John Godber’s play Muddy Cows (Stephen Joseph, 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.

Further casting to be announced.
