It’s the roaring 1920s. Chicago is awash with jazz and liquor. Murder is front page news and everyone wants a piece of it. Join us for this a dazzling, satirical look at fame, justice, and the media machine. Based on real-life murders and trials, Chicago follows Roxie Hart, a wannabe vaudevillian star who murders her lover and convinces her hapless husband, Amos, to take the rap… until he realises he’s been duped and turns on Roxie. Sent to death row, Roxie meets her hero, the famed double-murderess and nightclub performer Velma Kelly. They vie for the spotlight and the headlines, ultimately joining forces in search of the ‘American Dream’: fame, fortune and acquittal.
The amateur production of Chicago the Teen Edition is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals Ltd. Book by Fred Ebb & Bob Fosse, music by John Kander, lyrics by Fred Ebb. Based on the play by Maurine Dallas Watkins. Script adaptation by David Thomas.
