Suanne Braun to play Mrs Meers in #48HourMillie!
We’re so happy to announce that the role of Mrs Meers will be performed by the fabulous, multi-talent Suanne Braun, who says, “I’m thrilled, excited and terrified in equal measure to be a part of this incredible challenge.”
Showtime Challenge: 48-Hour Musicals’ one-night-only production of Thoroughly Modern Millie is coming to the Adelphi Theatre on 20 March 2016. An all-singing, all-dancing production, featuring full cast, choreography and orchestra. Rehearsed in just 48 hours, with proceeds to the charity Mind, this promises to be the West End’s most thoroughly-exciting night of the year. Tickets available here.
“We’re so delighted to have such a multi-talented, versatile, comedic actress on board in Suanne Braun. I honestly can’t WAIT to see her transform into Mrs Meers. What a treat we’re all in store for on 20th March!” Ian Haig
