University of North Georgia (UNG) students Holleigh Looney and Coley Warren took to the stage in "Thoroughly Modern Mille" at the Oconee Civic Center in Watkinsville, Georgia.

Since she was in 10th grade, Holleigh Looney has participated with Brightstone Productions, a nonprofit community theater group in Oconee County.

In April, she and two other University of North Georgia (UNG) students took to the stage in "Thoroughly Modern Mille" at the Oconee Civic Center in Watkinsville, Georgia.

"I really love singing and dancing and anything that has to do with theater," said Looney, a freshman majoring in English from Bethlehem, Georgia.

Joining her in the production were Maria Anifowose and Coley Warren. It was Anifowose's first time in a theater production, and Warren inspired her to do it.

"Coley was in the show in January," Anifowose said. "He asked if I was going to audition. I told him 'This is so amazing not to join."
