Do you even know what a stenographer is?
The Urban Dictionary describes it thus:
A stenographer is someone who types what people say. You have to listen carefully and type very fast to be a stenographer. On TV shows, you may have noticed someone typing everything the judge, lawyers, and witnesses say in a courtroom. That’s the stenographer.
So it’s the ideal subject matter for a tap dancing number as you tip tap away at your typewriter and that’s exactly the idea behind this number in my Youth Theatre’s production of Thoroughly Modern Millie. In this scene Millie walks the stenography test.
Millie (Emily Jackson) had sadly lost her voice on the day I filmed the rehearsal.
