Ansley Hughes in Thoroughly Modern Millie: highly recommended

As you'll see from the video, the Academy of Children's Theater, under the direction of Cynthia Whitaker and Lauren Ross, hit a peak moment Friday night at the First Methodist PAC. Their song and dance was rippling. Timing was sharp, the singers were tuneful and the cast has strength from the bubbling top to the smallest role.

Ansley Hughes, Andrew Smith, Susan Kirton, Carolyn Bryant, Bridget Winder and Bryan Wooley get the first level of praise.

Pick up on the vibe of the ACT team by Donecia Pea's thoughtful background story in the Times.
Showtime is 7 pm for the last show, Sat, May 12.
Tickets: (318) 429-6885.

Whole-heartedly agree! The ACT production of "Millie" possesses wonderful energy and tuneful singing. Cast radiates that joy to the audience - everyone looks like they are having a great time on stage! Seeing Susan Kirton's hilarious take on the villian character "Mrs Meers" is alone worth the price of a ticket! Kudos to the ACT group and the Cynthia Whitaker/ Lauren Ross team for their consistently enjoyable theatre productions!
