Mar. 20 - Mar. 29, 2015

Set in the legendary city during the roaring “jazz hot” 1920s, Chicago tells the story of two rival vaudevillian murderesses locked up in Cook County Jail. Nightclub star Velma Kelly (Brooklyn McDaris) is serving time for killing her husband and sister after finding the two in bed together. Driven chorus girl Roxie Hart (Priscilla Santana) has 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 (Sandy Dlugas) and slickster lawyer Billy Flynn (John Mischtian), 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 ideas of her own.

Other characters include Reporter Mary Sunshine (Bea Huckabay), Roxie's husband Amos (Dan Becker), Fred Casely (Nicholas Lopez), Judge (Wayne Bachus) and Martin Harrison (Clyde Ciupek). Cell Block Girls include Mona (Marissa Malley), Annie (Jackie Lock), June (Joy Ciupek), Hunyak (Misty Barham), Liz (CiCi Russell), and Go-to-Hell Kitty (Kris Glorioso). Ensemble includes Jaython James, Brian Johnson, John Asbach, Martha Satterwhite and Alexandra Von Tolleson LaMotte.

The production staff includes Dr. Michael Johnson, director; Dustin Ozment, technical director; Wayne Bachus, musical director; JoAnna Langthorn, choreographer and Megan Green, stage manager.
