Note For Auditioning Actors Regarding Dance in this Show:
Don’t be intimidated by the dancing! We’ve done CHICAGO before with non-dancers; Fosse is not as hard as it looks, so take the pressure off of yourself!

Directed & Choreographed By: Emily Cobb (HEATHERS TEEN ED, HEAD OVER HEELS, SEUSSICAL) 

Synopsis:
Ever inspiring and feeling even more timely now than when it was written, CHICAGO is set in the legendary city during the roaring “jazz hot” 20s. CHICAGO tells the story of two rival vaudevillian murderesses locked up in Cook County Jail. Nightclub star Velma’s serving time for killing her husband and sister after finding the two in bed together. Driven chorus girl Roxie’s been tossed in the joint for bumping off the lover she’s been cheating on her husband with. Not one to rest on her laurels, Velma enlists the help of prison matron Mama Morton and slickster lawyer Billy Flynn, who turn Velma’s incarceration into a murder-of-the-week media frenzy, thus preparing the world for a splashy showbiz comeback. But Roxie’s got some of her own tricks up her sleeve…
