Ladies and Gentlemen. You are about to see a story of murder, greed, corruption, violence, exploitation, adultery and treachery. All the things we hold near and dear to our hearts.
So begins Chicago, the sharp edged satire, and the longest running American musical in Broadway history, and the show on which the Academy award winning film was based.
Set in the roaring twenties, and with wonderful inspiration from Vaudeville, Chicago explores the lives of the Velma Kelly, Roxie Hart and the other Merry Murderesses on death row in their quest for fame, fortune, and acquittal.
And now CYMC will bring the high school version of this incredible show to the stage at the Sid Williams Theatre.
With a dazzling score, an intelligent and witty script, and fantastic roles for women, Chicago is a show not to be missed.
