Mill Street Live Summer Musical Show
By Donna Hahn
Directed by Jamie Jeanty
The “Mill Street Live” Summer Musical Series is celebrating its tenth year of fantastic performances at the Plymouth Arts Center in downtown Plymouth, WI. In recognition of its 10th Anniversary and the PAC’s 25th Anniversary, this year’s show will be performed by alumni members of the Mill Street Guild with a fun theme of “Rock of Ages!” Mill Street Live is a high energy song and dance musical revue and is regarded as one of the most entertaining summer shows in the area. This show features music that spans six generations; truly a show for all ages to enjoy. Featured genres are Rock n’ roll (old and new,) Country, Jazz, Blues, and more. The show is suitable for all ages and families are encouraged to attend.
The Mill Street Live show was established at the Plymouth Arts Center in 2009. The performers, ages 17 and older from the greater area, come together with a common goal of providing an exciting and highly energetic experience not only for the audience, but for those in the show. Musical direction and choreography are organically produced within the group, as well as utilizing talents in art, costumes, staging, and general organization. Mill Street Guild’s main goals are to perform, engage, and excite audiences of all ages and backgrounds. The Plymouth Arts Center is delighted to serve as the ‘homebase’ for the Mill Street Guild as we celebrate ten consecutive years of Mill Street Live. In addition to the summer series, the group has presented several fundraising productions for the PAC…An Evening in Paris, featuring the music of Les Miserable; Broadway Bound I & II; 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee,(a theatre production;) Love is An Open Door; A Valentine’s Evening of Mill Street Live; Duets for the Arts; MSL Date Night & Dinner; and A Walk Down Lover’s Lane.
