Thoroughly Modern Millie

Thoroughly Modern Millie is a musical with music by Jeanine Tesori, lyrics by Dick Scanlan, and a book by Richard Morris and Scanlan.[1] It is based on the 1967 film of the same name,[2] which itself was based on the British musical Chrysanthemum, which opened in London in 1956. Thoroughly Modern Millie tells the story of a small-town girl, Millie Dillmount, who comes to New York City to marry for money instead of love – a thoroughly modern aim in 1922, when women were just entering the workforce. Millie soon begins to take delight in the flapper lifestyle, but problems arise when she checks into a hotel owned by the leader of a white slavery ring in China.[3] The style of the musical is comic pastiche. Like the film on which it is based, it interpolates new tunes with some previously written songs.

Luke has been tasked with training the dogs to perform a variety of tricks 'set to script' as well as teaching actress Samantha Dodemainde, who plays Dorothy, how to work collaboratively with the dogs and keep them focussed in the performance.
"After rigerous paw-ditions across the country, we unanimously sgreed that Flick and Trouble were the perfect dogs to play out Toto," said John Frost. "They are clever and confidant dogs who will be trained based on techniques using natural instincts and positive reinforcement for tricks from travelling in a "flying" House. to being carried in a basket by Dorothy and encounters with the Wicked Witch of the West. We know Luke will have a wonderful time training flick and Trouble and we have no doubt Australian audiences will fall in love with them too."
Suzanne Jones said, "We are absolutely thrilled to be collaborating with the RSPCA Victoria as our chosen official charity partner. With Toto being one of the most-lived characters in the show it seemed a logical and rewarding partnership in each state. As Dorothy discovers there is no place like home; so we are looking forward to working with the RSPCA in each state to raise money and awareness of the surrendered and homeless animals that come into its care, to help find them a new, forever home".
Flick and Trouble will join The Wizard of Oz cast beside Athony Warlow as the Wizard and Professor Marvel, Lucy Durack as Glinda the Good Witch, Jemma Rix as The Wicked Witch of the West and Smantha Dodemaide as Dorothy.
