Set in 1920s Chicago, fame-hungry Roxie Hart joins jazz-rival and fellow murderess Velma Kelly in Cook County Jail. In an attempt for survival, publicity and stardom, the skills of Chicago’s slickest lawyer Billy Flynn and prison matron Mama Morton are needed to keep Roxie and her fellow inmates from the gallows. As the women compete for Flynn’s attention and to keep their names in the press, Roxie and Velma are put head-to-head. Their incarcerations turn into a showbiz extravaganza, relying on media frenzy, naive husbands and sob-sister journalists to save their necks. But who will succeed and live to jazz another day? Will Chicago’s legal system provide justice….or fame? Our insanely talented cast have been absolutely wonderful to work with and we can’t wait for you to experience this year’s musical production: CHICAGO!
