Miss Jill recently choreographed Thoroughly Modern Millie for Light Opera of NJ and Plays in the Park. Review by NJ Arts Maven, Ruth Ross:.…”This production offers other pleasures as well. Jill Cookingham has choreographed a series of lively and clever numbers nimbly performed by the large chorus.”

Scott Hart (a lead in the production), is the producer of A Christmas Story on Broadway. In 2013 he was nominated for both a Tony and Drama Desk Award. Mr. Hart has invited TFDC Tap and Musical Theater students to private auditions for A Christmas Story this fall!

TFDC is honored and proud to announce the addition of Joanna Hoty Russell to the staff as a voice instructor for Musical Theater classes in addition to being a private vocal coach. Joanna just played Muzzy Van Hossmere in Thoroughly Modern Millie for Light Opera of NJ. Joanna is a graduate of Cleveland Institute of Music, received both Bachelor and Master of Music degrees in voice performance. For over fifteen years, she has been a featured performer and director with the Light Opera of New Jersey.

TFDC has added an adult Musical Theater Class to the schedule! This class is for singers and actors needing to improve on their dance for auditions and shows.
