Kilworth House Theatre awarded double 'gold'

As Team GB return from the Rio Olympics with an amazing record number of medals, local venue Kilworth House Theatre has achieved their own ‘double gold’ being awarded the much coveted ‘Critic’s Pick’ from The Stage for the second time this year.

The most recent accolade was bestowed on the venue for the high-spirited, musical romp ‘Thoroughly Modern Millie’ running from 16th August – 11th September which was awarded a rare 5 star review with the production being described as “sheer joy from start to finish”. The venue was earlier awarded the Critic’s pick for their first production of the season ‘West Side Story’ in June, which also achieved a 5 star review.

‘Thoroughly Modern Millie’ has also received huge acclaim from audiences since opening and is set to be another sell-out show for the venue.

“Kilworth House theatre does it again. Thoroughly Modern Millie was superb”

“Absolutely brilliant entertainment … The choreography is some of the best I have ever seen on stage anywhere … A magnificent evening: West End performances … Quite unbelievable! Not to be missed!”

Based on the film of the same name - and including such memorable numbers as ‘How the Other Half Lives’, ‘Not for the Life of Me’, ‘Ah! Sweet Mystery of Life’ and of course the title song ‘Thoroughly Modern Millie’ – this Award winning musical follows small-town girl Millie Dillmount after she arrives in New York City in pursuit of a wealthy husband!
