In early 1993, Millis resident Rya Lory offered an acting class through the Millis Recreation Department. Ms. Lory had a strong background in theater and dramatic arts in New York, and had recently moved to the Boston area, settling in Millis.
Her original goal was for the student/actors to present script readings on stage. However, the amateur actors exceeded her goals, and presented their first play in November of 1993 — Neil Simon's comedy “Plaza Suite,” which incidentally was a sell out!!!
Since 1995, the Millis Theatre Group has become a non-profit community theater membership organization, which produces a fall and spring play each year.
In 1992, the theater group formed a partnership with Millis Middle and High School, where the group volunteers production of an annual spring musical with the schools.
