25th June - 10th July 2021
Chicago, a story of murder, greed, corruption, violence, exploitation, adultery, and treachery – all those things we hold near and dear to our heart.
Roxie Hart is in prison for murdering her lover and trying to pin it on her hapless husband Amos. She meets Velma Kelly, a murderess and a headline star and the two decide to form an unusual nightclub act to keep them in the public eye. Velma shrewdly enlists prison matron Mama Morton and slickster lawyer Billy Flynn, who turn her incarceration into a media frenzy, in preparation for a splashy showbiz comeback. But Roxie’s got some tricks of her own…
Chicago's sexy, sassy score has one show-stopping song after another including Razzle Dazzle, Cell Block Tango, and All That Jazz.
