Millie Van Illa is a blast from the past! This funny lady is inspired by the vaudeville and ragtime era. She is a comedienne, a singer, a dancer of the Hootchie-coo, an aficionado of vaudey-ville and burly-q, and a lover of life and good whisky. Millie has also been known to break out a ukulele every now and again (get out yer ear plugs, folks!)
Her speciality is in making the good ole songs relevant to modern times. If you like a dose of satire and wit, winks and nudges, you’ll enjoy Millie’s banter and clowning.
Millie’s been appearing in Asheville Vaudeville since 2013, and she also enjoys playing Mistress of Ceremonies and show producer every now and then.
