Ya gotta be an excellent tapper for one...and Millie has sort of a wide range, she never exactly belts but should have a strong singing voice capable of being a soprano, in my opinion. The character of Millie has a quirky and funny sense of humor and is essentially figuring out who she is and what she wants. I'm sure you could google the show and find a full synopsis...and I would recommend purchasing the libretto and/or cd before the audition and going through some of her songs...and practice your tapping! Good luck!

...is a mezzo-soprano, a comical character who is a "flapper" out to get a man ! (husband) Good luck- this would be a fun show to perform in.

I'm happy to email you some MP3's of the songs that Millie sings. She has some great songs. Her friend, Dorothy, is also a fun part. Sutton Foster, who played the role on Broadway, has a terrific voice and personality, so she really made the show special.
