From Stage to Page: Animation Dreams for Thoroughly Modern Millie actor
24 Mar 2017
A segment of Soo Yeon's comic on Thoroughly Modern Millie
Year Eleven student Soo Yeon Kim has been inspired by working on the upcoming Perse Players amateur production of Thoroughly Modern Millie to draw a comic series based on the musical.
Soo Yeon, who is a member of the ensemble, used her experience performing in the show to not only draw the musical’s most iconic scenes, but to imagine the world of Thoroughly Modern Millie beyond the text itself.
Speaking with Soo Yeon, she discussed how this experience has not only been formative in getting into character for her performance, but has encouraged her further in pursuing a career in animation.
Thoroughly Modern Mille will be opening its doors at the ADC Theatre in Cambridge on Wednesday 29, Thursday 30 and Friday 31 March.
Listen below to an interview with Soo Yeon where she discusses what motivated her to draw the musical, and visit our Facebook page to see pictures of Soo Yeon’s drawings in full:
