Like a breath of fresh air after a cold winter, Rebecca Green stars in the Sidmouth Arts Club Operatic Society's Easter show, Thoroughly Modern Millie.

Rebecca was brought up in Beer with her family who operate Jimmy Green surf shops in East Devon.

When she was a youngster, she began dance training at The Sidmouth Ballet School before being accepted at the London Studio Centre to concentrate on musical theatre. Since then, she's danced in London, abroad and also on a cruise ship! Before she appeared in Easter 2008's Anything Goes! she hadn't been on the Manor Pavilion stage for 10 years! Thoroughly Modern Millie is a musical romp that took Broadway by storm and includes a score bristling with songs and a host of dance numbers.

Set in New York in 1922, the show tells the story of young Millie Dillmount, who has just moved to the city in search of a new life for herself.

Filled with frisky flappers, dashing leading men and a dragon lady of a villainess, the cast includes Tom Beesley, Samantha Morris, Marc Colson, Selwyn Kussman, Alec Fellows-Bennett, Donna Heard, Becca Simmins, Imogen Hudson-Clayton amongst others.

Joan Heard is directing, Vicky Salter is doing the choreography and John Amery is the musical director. Tickets go on sale from February 2 at the Manor Pavilion (01395-514413). The show opens on Saturday, April 11 to April 18 with matinees on April 13 and 18.
