The Blakehay Theatre
Weston College Performing Arts students present Broadway’s longest-running American musical, Chicago!
Set in the 1920s, Chicago is a dazzling look at fame, justice, and the media machine, based on real life murders. The show follows Roxie Hart, a wannabe vaudeville star who murders her lover and is arrested, despite her attempts to convince her pushover husband, Amos, to lie for her. In the Cook County Jail, Roxie meets her hero, the famed double-murderess and nightclub performer Velma Kelly. When they both acquire the same lawyer, Billy Flynn, tensions come to a head as they fight for the spotlight. With catchy, sexy tunes; All That Jazz and Razzle Dazzle,
Chicago is a musical spectacular that is as addictive as gossip rags and as unforgettable as any trial of the century!
