The winner of 2002’s Tony Award for best musical, Thoroughly Modern Millie, kicks off the Heritage Theatre Festival in retro fashion. The show follows Millie, a wide-eyed Midwestern farm girl-turned-flapper, through a series of misadventures in New York City’s Jazz Age. Big city lights and Big Apple nights set the stage for this fish-out-of-water story as toe-tapping tunes remind us why it’s one of Broadway’s best.

Through 7/5. $20-40, times vary. Culbreth Theatre, 109 Culbreth Rd. 924-3376.
