Kathleen Kellaigh, the co-founder and artistic director of Action Theatre Conservatory (ATC Studios) in Clifton, is the director of the production. Jalmari Vanamo serves as musical director, Judi Niebuhr is the choreographer and Tara Freifeld is the stage manager.

The story of the musical is set in Manhattan in 1922. A gutsy Millie Dillmount arrives in the Big Apple to fulfill her modern and chic life dreams, which quickly dissolve into reality. She gets mugged, falls in love, lives in a seedy hotel run by an actress-turned-villain, and encounters all the big city has to offer.

Founded in 2005, the Theater League of Clifton is a non-profit organization dedicated to fostering an appreciation of the arts through theatrical performances, while providing quality entertainment for all ages. The theater league welcomes volunteers in all aspects of performance and production. Mark Peterson is the president of the organization.
