Chicago – High School Edition
Nelson Youth Theatre Company presents this full length High School Edition of Chicago. 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.
Featuring the hit songs “All That Jazz”, “Cell Block Tango”, “When you’re Good to Mama”, “We Both Reached for the Gun”, Mister Cellophane”, “Razzle Dazzle” and of course “Roxie”.
