Thoroughly Modern Producer Millie tap danced into the world of the Children’s TV Industry a year and a half ago after making the transition from the all singing, all dancing world of Musical Theatre to the all singing, all dancing world of Pretzel TV. In her first year at Pretzel, Millie took on the roles of Production Manager, Live Show Floor Manager, Choreographer and Online Presenter for the CBBC Official Chart Show…earning a BAFTA Nomination along the way. Working with a budget where cappuccinos are replaced with instant coffee granules, Millie’s incredible negotiation and people skills (she holds the record for 17 free coffees in a row at Pret A Manger…that’s right. 17.) saw the show through 26 successful and profitable episodes and to top it all off, a recommission for a second series of 43 episodes.
Now starring as the role of Producer Millie’s signature creativity and positivity combined with her analytical and realistic yet optimistic approach has led the company into a successful second year. Drawing on her various performance experiences whether that be dancing on stage with Take That to acting alongside David Tennant and Sam Claflin to Producing her first musical, ‘Aspirations’ at the age of 13 (the DVD still manages to surface every Christmas – thanks Mum), she has a full understanding of many areas of the entertainment industry and how to put on a show for every size and kind of audience.
And now that she’s interviewed Craig David, she’s never fully dressed without a smile.
