Tap-dancing CCHS students tackle ‘Thoroughly Modern Millie’

What better way to become a modern woman in the 1920s than to move to the big city determined to marry your boss — tap dancing all the while.

The Clear Creek High School music department is performing “Thoroughly Modern Millie,” and director Meaghan Quigley and the cast agree that while the plot has many twists and turns, audiences will love it.

“We needed a more uplifting show this year,” Quigley said. “This show has big singing and dancing numbers, and to my recollection, (CCHS has) not done a tap show.”
