Our first high school summer session is the Kander and Ebb classic ‘Chicago’. This show takes on the all too timely themes of celebrity, politics, crime and punishment and gives them a razzle-dazzle spin. In roaring twenties Chicago, chorine Roxie Hart murders a faithless lover and convinces her hapless husband, Amos, to take the rap…until he finds out he’s been duped and turns on Roxie. Convicted and sent to death row, Roxie and another “Merry Murderess,” Velma Kelly, vie for the spotlight and the headlines, ultimately joining forces in search of the “American Dream”: fame, fortune, and acquittal. This sharp-edged satire features a dazzling score that sparked immortal staging by Bob Fosse.
Please note: Chicago does contain adult themes, humor and strong language.
